Cheap Chinese Chicken: The Memo


Dear President Cotton,

I’m pleased to hear that Willard College has signed the contract to allow CCC, Inc to be the exclusive provider of all campus chicken products. I think your students will get years of enjoyment out of our locally sourced and traditionally raised and slaughtered poultry. You seemed especially taken by our policy of never over-refrigerating the chicken. In fact, many of the most important poultry flavors come from letting the meat settle in the open air. A properly aged chicken, like fine wine, takes on the flavors of nature, the sun, the humidity, and particulate matter invisible to the human eye. As with all of our new clients, the first shipment will come with specific instructions for the safe storage and processing of our product.

Thank you for your careful attention to all of the details in this transaction. Clearly there were major hurdles to getting this contract through!

Best regards, Charles Chownes, CEO, CCC, Inc.
