KFC in South Korea to use only local poultry

30.03.2017

KFC in South Korea announced on March 23 that it will use only domestic poultry for its chicken menus. The chain currently uses a mix of domestic and Brazilian chicken to make patties for its burgers, reported The Investor. The decision is in direct response to consumer concerns surrounding Brazilian chicken due to the rotten meat scandal.

“Even though we don't use the product in question, we have made the decision to relieve consumer concerns,” said a KFC official. On March 20, the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety halted the distribution of imported Brazilian chicken, following media reports that food processing firms there had bribed government officials to overlook inspections.
