by | July 21, 2020

Fast food chain KFC has teamed up with a Russian bioprinting company to develop 3D-printed chicken nuggets.

KFC has been working with 3D Bioprinting Solutions in Moscow to make the nuggets from a combination of cultured chicken cells and plant-based materials.

“Latest Trends And Innovations”

“At KFC, we are closely monitoring all of the latest trends and innovations and doing our best to keep up with the times by introducing advanced technologies to our restaurant networks,” said Raisa Polyakova, general manager of KFC Russia.

“Our experiment in testing 3D bioprinting technology to create chicken products can also help address several looming global problems,” she added.

“We are glad to contribute to its development and are working to make it available to thousands of people in Russia and, if possible, around the world.”

The chicken nuggets are said to soon be entering the final testing phase, with a rollout to restaurants planned for the future.

The fast food chain claims that the finished product will be “as close as possible in taste and appearance” to real chicken flesh.

KFC is responsible for the deaths of approximately one billion chickens every year, causing suffering to the animals and harm to the environment. The company has highlighted that the 3D-printed version of the meat will have a dramatically reduced impact on the environment.
