Hon Chairperson, I hereby move without notice:

That the Council-

Notes allegations that Supreme Poultry is thawing, washing, injecting, rebranding, then reselling the chickens with new expiry dates to outlets such as Pick n Pay and Shoprite Checkers;

Takes this opportunity to condemn in the harshest possible terms this unethical and hazardous practice which exposes our people to the risk of eating old chicken at deflated prices; and

Calls on the Department of Agriculture to investigate this unscrupulous practice and ensure that this company pays a heavy price for misleading our people and posing a risk to their health.
