COSTA Rican processor, Conservas Fincas de Oro, is rolling out a canned chicken line. From 18 May, the company is distributing three varieties of canned chicken under the Quickie's brand: chicken in water, chicken with vegetables and chicken with chickpeas, which will cost around CRC1 000 (US$1.79) per 100g or 110g can. The company's manager told local press that the economic downturn could be the key to this product's success. The processor specialises in canned foods and already exports canned pineapple and palm hearts.
