KFC Canada Adds Vegan Fried Chicken To The Menu Nationwide

by | August 6, 2020

KFC has announced that vegan fried chicken is set to become a permanent addition to the menu in Canada.

The fast food giant has partnered with plant-based meat company Lightlife to create the vegan fried chicken, which will be available as a sandwich from August 10.

The plant-based chicken was first introduced to KFC fans in Canada during a trial last year, with stocks quickly selling out.

“Extraordinary Demand”

“When we tested Plant-Based KFC by Lightlife late last year, we sold over a month’s worth of sandwiches in six hours,” said Samantha Redman, Chief Marketing Officer of KFC Canada.

“Seeing the extraordinary demand for Plant-Based KFC, we worked quickly to bring these menu items to our restaurants across Canada,” she added.

“Whether you enjoy a vegetarian or flexitarian lifestyle—or you’re one of our loyal fans looking for something new, Plant-Based KFC is a modern take on our world-famous classics.”

“Lightlife is excited to continue on this journey with KFC,” said Dan Curtin, President of Greenleaf Foods, SPC, the company that owns Lightlife.

“The Same Great Taste”

Curtin added that the company is committed to “providing Canadians with plant-based foods that deliver on incredible taste and are more broadly available to consumers who know balance is essential to living well.”

“The Plant-Based KFC sandwich delivers the same great taste of chicken—but made with plants.”
