Hotels and Restaurants Harried As Price of Chicken Soars

According to news reports, hotels and restaurants in south Indian Kerala state have decided to stop serving chicken in their menus from Thursday as poultry prices continue to soar.

The Kerala Hotel and Restaurants Association said prices of chicken have ranged from Rs 105 (US$1.97) to Rs 120 (US$2.25) per kg a few weeks ago but cost has now gone up to about Rs 170 (US$3.19) a kg.

As demand for beef falls, chicken prices have surged considerably.

“This uncontrolled price rise would only result in chicken products not being served in hotels and restaurants in the state,” said members of the association.

Some 100 truckloads of chicken are transported to Kerala from Tamil Nadu every day.
