Silver-ish Lining to the Bird Flu Cloud

Apparently the bird flu scare in China has led to “significant” profit losses for Yum Foods, the parent company of Kentucky Fried Chicken.

Unfortunately we are still not talking profit losses that will require the closing of all KFCs worldwide (take a moment to daydream about that…), but something in the order of $120 million in just three months, with more expected this year. Before you decide to kick back and get out of the activism business, after a campaign to somehow reassure customers that KFC is “high-quality food” Yum is STILL planning to open seven hundred new KFCs across China this year.

About Franziska

I've been a vegetarian for almost 30 years now, since adopting my first dog, and vegan for more than 10. Why? The simplest and truest answer is that I love animals, and knowing what happens to them just to satisfy selfish human desires makes consuming any animal products impossible. I am a NARN Board member because its goals, beliefs, and ethics are mine, and because nothing is ever done that doesn't have only the animals at heart. There are no politics, no factions, no arguments, no personal motives. As for my favorite quote, it is beyond a doubt Ralph Waldo Emerson's "The purpose of life is not to be happy. The purpose of life is to be useful. To be useful, compassionate, honorable, and to have it matter that you lived."
