KFC Returns to Bidvest

KFC is returning to its old supplier to resolve the chicken shortage that forced two-thirds of its outlets to close.


After an embarrassing month of chicken and gravy shortages and store closures, KFC is returning to its old supplier Bidvest Logistics.

The product shortage started shortly after KFC switched its supplier to DHL. KFC was allegedly warned that they would have delivery problems if they switched a deal with DHL. Critics of the shortage has said that it could have easily been avoided if the companies tested every single assumption made in the delivery plans.
