KFC promised to PETA that was going to make decisions with respect to animal welfare. But he has done nothing. In May 2001 would increase the demand for welfare, but at present to being one of the more aggressive poultry industries.

Undercover Investigation

The birds are slaughtered and drain their blood to put them in boiling water, but this process is flawed as most chickens are still alive and blood has not yet been drained when immersed in tanks of scalding water causing her flesh turns red.


Internal Customer Confession:


Supporting Phrases

“I just find it bizarre – the massive gulf between the marketing of KFC, which plays on the whole soul food, hanging-out-with-friends angle, and the [factory] farm reality. They’re clever … to create that diversion to the point where you don’t think about the process behind it. I’m sure it would put people off for life.” By The Go! Team “I have been particularly concerned with the sufferings of chickens for many years; I find it unacceptable that violence is the basis of some of our food habits.” By Dalai Lama

Try To Do This You are going to read an article about customer service in banks. Six sentences have been removed from the article. Choose from the sentences A-G the one which fits each gap. Write the letter in the space provided to complete the sentences. There is one extra sentence which you do not need to use. A Although people do not expect much from the internet these days, this will change in the future. B The managers recognize that customers find them impersonal and unnatural. C First National is al so preparing to adopt this personal approach to its internet banking. D They have the attitude that some skills, such as keyboard skills and so on, can be taught, but a member of staff can’t be taught to be a nice person. E Telephones are very personal because staffs are speaking to people on their own territory. F And if customers try to contact the bank by

telephone, they are put through to a call center in another country where they have to speak slowly in order to be understood. G Not everyone wants a chatty, friendly service. Customer Service in Banks The banking profession doesn’t have a very good reputation for customer service at the moment, and it’s not just due to loss of savings. High street branches are shutting down and where banks are available, their opening hours are inconvenient. Staffs at the desks are surly, increasingly under-qualified and often unable to answer questions. F. Astonishingly, however, 86% of the customers at one bank are either ‘extremely satisfied’ or ‘very satisfied’ with the service they receive. And what is even more surprising is that the bank in question has no High Street outlets at all. First National bank is run entirely through the telephone and the internet. And its success shows that customer service is just about face-to-face contact with clients. The primary concern of the bank is recruiting the right people. D. So they only

recruit people who communication skills.




And unlike other services that operate primarily over the telephone, the staff at First National do not use scripts. B What this bank asks for is that staff be themselves and establish a rapport with their customers. Part of this is recognizing people’s needs. G. Some want the process to be swift and efficient. The member of staff has to pick up on the caller’s mood and react accordingly. C. The idea that customer service can be improved on a medium where there is no actual contact with a member of staff may seem strange at first. However, the website designers at First National spend a great deal of time understanding their customers and offering services which meet their needs. A First National is already taking steps to fill this demand. They already offer a service in which customers receive a text when funds are received or when their account falls below a certain level. In the future, online systems may pre-empt customers’ needs in even more sophisticated ways.

 Pre-empt: prevent or to occupy in order to establish a prior right to buy. Then, write a short paragraph defining why you believe Customer Service is important in business.  The customer service is important in business because with this the company creates a serious public image of it and shows that the company does care about the problems of the client. Without this a company would not exist. The customer loyalty is very important to create a good word of mouth, the best means of publicity that a business has. Other benefits of the customer service are: increasing sales, staff satisfaction, competitive advantage, reducing costs and more. Taking into account the six basic needs: information, options, control, understanding, friendliness, fairness. This is why I consider the customer service the most important part that a company should have.

Another company that was exposed was Bancafe, this company lost large sums of many after the announced suspension of payments. Leaving many families without money to live and the banking system was lack of cash circulation in the country. In many cases the government has helped several people to try to recover their money.

Today many companies like these have been exposed for their poor service such as KFC, McDonalds, Taco Bell, and among others.
