The UK's largest poultry seller has warned that the price of chicken is set to rise because of supply chain problems.

The chief executive of 2 Sisters Food Group, Ronald Kers, said that "in reality food is too cheap".

Mr Kers told the BBC that the price of chicken, the UK's most popular meat, should be higher to reflect the extra costs the business is facing.

The firm has 600 farms and 16 factories across the UK.

Mr Kers told the BBC's Today programme that the company has had to cope with additional costs because of Brexit, Covid, labour shortages and logistics issues.

He added that the "significant" inflated costs of packaging, energy and CO2 were also "bulking up the price of food".

£2.50-£3.50 fir a whole cooked chicken? Even in the affluent Sooth, there must be something wrong!  The prospect of of cheap Frankenstein chicken from Amrika is even more frightening.

Our system of food amongs5 many things in this country needs to change.

When I first started seeing Mrs ‘Death I would buy yellow ticket food from the shops. She was horrified and threw it in the bin!

Don’t you worry Seppe. My mother was born before the Second World War, I still know what frugal is!
