RCL FOODS believes that the local poultry industry is in a crisis. As a consequence the Board is forced to relook at all options in evaluating our Chicken busines model. The headwinds of low economic growth, a volatile currency, high commodity input costs and drought impactsare real and understood. However, the strong platform that we are establishing internally for our business will create even bigger and better opportunities for RCL FOODS.
