SOUTH AFRICA - AFGRI Poultry, the broiler producing and processing arm of leading listed South African agricultural services and foods group AFGRI Limited, has been appointed as a supplier to the world’s most popular chicken restaurant chain, KFC, which is owned by Yum.

This positions AFGRI Poultry as the third preferred supplier of chicken product to Yum and augments AFGRI’s existing status as a decade-long supplier of quality oil to Yum through its Nedan oil extraction operation.

“The relationship with Yum is extremely important for AFGRI and being able to expand our current relationship into chicken products is something we are extremely happy about,” says Chris Venter, CEO.

“This announcement, together with the appointment of Izaak Breitenbach as MD of AFGRI Poultry reflects our commitment to the poultry business”, concludes Mr Venter.
