KFC Adds Vegan Burger To The Menu At 900 Stores
The burger — which is on sale for £3.99 — comprises a Quorn fillet coated in KFC’s signature recipe of mystery herbs and spices, served with mayonnaise and iceberg lettuce. The new plant-based chicken meal is set to be a permanent addition to the menu.
“The Colonel was all about welcoming everyone to his table” said Ira Dubinsky, Innovation Director at KFC UK and Ireland.
“Now vegans, flexitarians and our fried chicken fans can all enjoy the taste of our Original Recipe together. We’ve worked hard to perfect the flavour and make a Vegan Burger the Colonel would be proud of.”
KFC has assured customers that the new burger will be prepared in a separate area to all animal products in order to avoid cross-contamination.

KFC Vegan Burger
Successful trials of the Quorn-based burger took place in London, Bristol, and the Midlands last summer, prompting the chicken giant to permanently put the plant-based meal on the menu.
Animal welfare organization People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) appealed to KFC in 2019 to create the meat-free burger.
“We are delighted to have played a part in KFC’s journey to bring quick, affordable, vegan options to a new audience” said Dawn Carr, Director of Vegan Corporate Projects at PETA.
“There is no doubt this vegan burger will be a huge hit.”
