If it ain't broke......

If ever you needed a example of this, check out KFC's latest issues - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-43110910.

KFC changed the distributor for the raw material needed and have hit a bit of a hiccough. :shock:

Presumably nobody there has heard of trialling or testing a new process...... :roll:

I do love one of the tweets about it though

... although maybe someone else didn't as the writer seems to have disappeared!! :wtf:

Not bothered as I know the KFC chickens had a miserable life before death so only buy chicken that I know have had a better quality of life. Not perfect maybe but at least better than the KFC ones had

DHL are another of those strange companies that have unexpected divergent interests and contracts, not just logistics. They've been heavily involved with purchasing in the NHS for a few years among other things. I'm sure they're great value for money...
But apart from that Mrs Lincoln how was the play?

Deutsche Post.... Bloody foreigners, coming over 'ere and taking our chicken! :?

KFC should have stayed with their last supplier - based in Johannesburg ;)

Most branches of KFC shut due to chicken shortage, McDonalds are said to be "Lovin it" :thumbup:
