Japan KFC Holdings announced on October 8 that Kentucky French fries and other potato products are temporarily suspended for sale at some of its stores.
KFC says in the notice: “Currently, imports of goods are delayed due to the disruption of the global distribution network due to the effects of the new coronavirus infection. Therefore, ‘potato’ may be temporarily suspended at some stores.”
KFC expects the situation will be normalized by Oct 12. The company says they apologize for the inconvenience and thank customers for their understanding.
The pandemic is continuing to cause problems for the shipping and logistics industries around the world, and disruption in the normal supply routes for KFC Japan’s imported frozen potato products is given as the reason for the suspension of its sale at some of KFC’s outlets in the country.
