Barbados: Key players in poultry sector urge fast food restaurants to review ordering practices

The Minister of Agriculture, the Barbados Agricultural Society (BAS) and local poultry producers have all rubbished recent claims by at least two local fast food outlets that a shortage of fresh chicken is slowing down their operations.

Instead of pointing fingers at the industry, stakeholders are urging consumers of large amounts of poultry to tighten their business practices and improve communication with their suppliers.

The swift rebuttals have come as Chicken Barn took a decision to close its Black Rock, Coverley and Bay Street locations on Monday due to a “lack of chickens available on island”.

It comes less than 24 hours after its management, along with that of Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC), were quoted reporting shortages spanning ten days.
