LONDON — At the Bestco International supermarket on central Edgware Road, British customers can stock up on staples of Twinings tea and HP sauce. Muslims can buy freshly butchered halal chicken, while homesick Poles can buy distinctly non-halal pork kielbasa imported from Silesia. The store is typical for catering to the various nationalities that have recently flocked here. Unscientific as it is, the snapshot reflects a more detailed picture that emerged last month when the government published the results of its first census in a decad.
