For the first time in 15 years American chicken is now being sold in South Africa.

According to a report by eNCA the chicken landed in the country over the weekend and has been on supermarket shelves since Tuesday.

This brings to a close the long dispute about selling American chicken in South Africa. In June last year South Africa agreed to the tariff free import of 65 000 metric tons of American chicken.
