KFC To Trial Vegan Chicken At One Lucky Store Tomorrow
International fast-food chain KFC is set to give vegan chicken a try at one of its stores in Canada tomorrow.
Customers can order the new plant-based chicken options at one of the Mississauga KFC stores in Ontario while stocks last.
The Plant-Based Fried Chicken Sandwich will be on sale for $6.99, or as part of a meal option from $8.99, alongside the Plant-Based Fried Popcorn Chicken Bucket from $3.99.
“We believe the Colonel’s famous finger lickin’ good taste should have no boundaries” explained Sam Redman, Chief Marketing Officer of KFC Canada. “So we’ve created several craveable plant-based options for Canadian’s looking for a meat-free meal.”
If successful, the trial could prompt KFC to launch the meat-free options at other locations next year.

LightLife Vegan Chicken
The new vegan chicken is produced by LightLife — a plant-based food company with products already widely available in Canada and the US.
“This is a landmark moment for Lightlife” said Dan Curtin, CEO of Greenleaf Foods, the company that owns LightLife.
“With pioneering partners like KFC, we can make plant-based foods more broadly available to the growing number of consumers seeking the option on the go.”
