SANTIAGO Jan 7 (Reuters) - Chile's diversified retailer Cencosud denied accusations on Thursday that it colluded with two other supermarket chains in a scheme to fix the prices of fresh chicken meat.

Chile's competition regulator on Wednesday accused supermarket chains Cencosud and SMU, and the local unit of Wal-Mart Stores Inc of participating in the scheme.

Cencosud said it "will energetically defend itself to prove its innocence. There is no collusion here." (Reporting by Gram Slattery)
