With chicken imports grinding to a halt following the bird flu scare in Karnataka, Kerala government-agency Meat Products of India (MPI) is making sure that chicken buffs in the city are not disappointed.

MPI will roll out its second mobile chicken and meat products outlet in the city on Wednesday.

The MPI van will tour various city locales throughout the day, MPI managing director Ani S Das said. ‘’The new mobile unit will take the total number in Thiruvananthapuram to two,’’ he said.

‘’Our aim is to provide clean and disease-free chicken to the public since there is a bird flu scare now,’’ he said.

The unit will halt at Kesavadasapuram, Pattom, Vellayambalam, Vazhuthacaud and Secretariat as per a prescribed daily schedule.

During the last Christmas-New Year season, MPI had launched its first mobile outlet at Connemara Market, Palayam, for marketing all of the 42 MPI products.

It had ploughed in record sales for the state government agency.

MPI also has plans to roll out a refrigerated unit on wheels which will serve as a mobile ‘thattukada.’

The state government has banned the import of chicken into the state after bird flu was reported in Hessarghatta.
