KFC gives DHL partial boot after British chicken delivery shortfall

London (dpa) - German logistics specialist DHL will no longer provide chickens to hundreds of KFC affiliates in Britain after its failure to deliver meat forced hundreds of restaurants to shut down last month, a KFC spokesman told dpa Thursday.

KFC - which stands for Kentucky fried chicken - was left with little choice but to shut its doors across Britain and Ireland after its workers were cut off from access to the primary ingredient in the fast food chain‘s cuisine.

About two-thirds of KFC‘s 900 outlets in the countries had to close when the shortage became known.

Logistics problems at DHL and its partner QSL prompted the shortage. DHL had only taken over the delivery contract for the chicken meat earlier that month from South African company Bidvest Logistics.

"Our focus remains on ensuring our customers can enjoy our chicken without further disruption," KFC said in a statement. "With that in mind, the decision has been taken in conjunction with QSL and DHL to revert the distribution contract for up to 350 of our restaurants in the north of the UK back to Bidvest Logistics."

KFC said that 97 per cent of the 900 restaurants have reopened, though "there will be some limited menus before we are back to business as usual."
