Popular fast food chain KFC has confirmed a shortage in potatoes caused by delay from international suppliers.

“Fam it was truly a Furaha December. Mlikula sherehe with your KFC faves. Ya’ll loved our chips a little too much, and we’ve run out. Sorry! Our team is working hard to resolve the issue. In the meantime here are some SWAP options for combo meals if you are craving our Kuku.” Said KFC

The news forced KFC to offer customers alternative meals as confirmed by the company’s Chief Executive for East Africa Jacques Theunissen who spoke exclusively to Business Daily Africa.

Theunissen noted that the delay was caused by COVID-19 pandemic that has in turn delayed shipment of the product even though they will be expecting their consignment on Tuesday 4th January.

“It has to do with delays in shipping lines due to the Covid situation. Ships have been delayed for more than a month now, but we are working hard to restore as the first containers are arriving in the port tomorrow (today),” Said Jacques Theunissen.

Even though the firm runs a number of outlets in the country, they do not procure potatoes locally so as to fill the gap currently being experienced.

According to the firm, all products procured must undergo global approval something that cannot be filled locally during such incidents.
