The Odisha government opened first outlet of ‘Chicken Fresh’ at Saheed Nagar in Bhubaneswar. Consumers can get fresh and hygienic chicken meat from the outlet within 10 minutes of placing the order.
The Odisha State Poultry Products Cooperative Marketing Federation (Opolfed), which is under the administrative control of F&ARD department, will run the outlet.
Opolfed has established a semi-automatic chicken processing unit with a capacity of 2,000 broiler birds per day so that consumers can get processed chicken immediately. Sources said the chicken meat will be free from blood tinges with complete de-bleeding at a semi-automatic processing unit which will make the meat highly palatable.
