Kindly Note Flora UK (Unilever's) response:

In the Name of Allah, the Inspirer of Truth.
Assalamu Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh

"We would like to clarify that the vegetarian suitability information in
question was intended as a guideline for Flora consumers in Australia only.

You will find ingredients differ from country to country because our
products are tailored to domestic demand and taste. I can confirm that
Flora Light sold in the UK is suitable for vegetarians as it doesn’t
contain pork gelatin. We have recently re-named our Flora Extra Light to
Flora Lighter than Light. Although the name has changed, there has not been
a formulation change and it remains unsuitable for vegetarians."
