The American appetite for a post COVID-19 pandemic return to normal and popular fast food chicken sandwiches is driving up chicken prices.
“The American consumer has been consuming more chicken recently, so you’ve got an increased demand of chicken products and you’ve got less hands on deck that can turn around and put the food to the restaurant,” said Zenput CEO Vladik Rikhter. “It creates a bit of havoc. We are up pretty significantly in chicken prices and there’s a shortage happening.”
Zenput works with restaurants and food stores helping them comply with safety regulations at more than 50,000 locations
