Potato farmers' deal with KFC almost completed
IN the next two months, after an intervention by the Kenya Private Sector Alliance (KEPSA), Agriculture Sector Network (ASNET) and the American fast food chain, Kenyan potatoes will be on the menu of Kentucky Fried Chicken.
Yesterday, chairman Bimal Kantaria from Kenya’s Agriculture Sector Network (ASNET) said they called the leadership of KFC, and together with the Potato Council of Kenya came up with a strategy of how KFC would use Kenyan potatoes. Two companies have won the tender to supply Kenyan potatoes.
