KFC's UK Chicken Crisis

Recommended Posts

Some people here, I know, have heard of the mess KFC got themselves into in the UK after switching to a non-specialist delivery company which then failed to deliver their chickens and had to face the ignominy of closing hundreds of outlets over the last couple of weeks.. There have been a few funny mentions on the Food Funnies forum, starting here.


Although the company has generally been praised for its open response and humorous response to the crisis, more serious problems have also arisen.


The company attempted to offload its undelivered chickens which were stuck in "delivery" depots to various food charities and anti-food waste organisations, nearly all of which were unable to accept them for legal and safety reasons. More on that here.


There is a good summary here.
