KFC now runs short on gravy

Following chicken issues last week, leading to over 600 outlets closing, KFC has now run low on gravy.

So although almost all of its 900 branches in the UK and Ireland are now open again, the ongoing distribution problems mean some restaurants were serving a 'reduced menu'.

A spokesman from the fried chicken chain said, 'We're working as hard as we can to get this sorted out. We know that our gravy is a big favourite!'

The GMB union criticised KFC's decision to move its contract from Bidvest, which is a very specialised logistics provider, to one that lacked a track record in food distribution.
