Frozen chicken in good supply

MEMBERS of the public can be assured they will find ample supply of frozen chicken at their supermarkets this festive season.

Goodman Fielder's general manager Chris Zaayman said the only reason for a shortage would be a failure of supermarkets' storage system because of the effects of Tropical Cyclone Evan.

"Our chicken is in full supply and we are working closely with all supermarkets Fiji-wide to ensure that our consumers have ease of supply of any bird profile of their choice," he said.

"This however, is conditional based on supermarket holding due to the effects of Tropical Cyclone Evan."

Mr Zaayman said all their frozen chickens were safely stored in sites that were equipped with backup generators.

"Food safety is paramount with Goodman Fielder Fiji."

He added that frozen chickens from sizes nine to 23 were in good supply and the public could find these in their respective supermarkets.

"The consumers of Fiji can be rest assured the supply of Crest Chicken will be plentiful Fiji wide," he said.
