First chicken shipments since 2000 reach South Africa

U.S. chicken is on grocery shelves in South Africa for the first time in nearly 17 years.

Five containers of U.S. bone-in chicken leg quarters and drumsticks from Tyson Foods and House of Raeford Farms arrived at the Port of Durban on Feb. 19, and were cleared by South African veterinary authorities on Feb. 22. The chicken cuts have been repackaged under the Jwayelani Butcheries brand and are now for sale at the company’s 21 shops in and around Durban.
