KFC Vegan Chicken Available Soon In The UK

by | December 4, 2019

Following successful trials in Canada, the US, and the UK this year, KFC is said to be bringing vegan chicken back to the UK for an extended stay.

The fast food chain trialled the vegan Imposter Burger — which is made in collaboration with Quorn — at KFC restaurants in London, Bristol, and the Midlands earlier this year.

Sources say that the plant-based meat will be available again at one UK store from December 27th, and will stay on the menu for at least six weeks.

“Working with KFC we’ve created a bespoke Quorn fillet that does the Colonel’s recipe justice” said Tony Davison, head of global foodservice at Quorn. “We have no doubt that KFC fans are going to love the modern take on a finger lickin’ favourite.”

PETA has described the Imposter Burger as “clucking marvellous.”

An anonymous KFC employee at the chosen UK store has shared that separate spaces have been created for storage, preparation, and sale of the animal-free products.

KFC trialled the plant-based options at one of its restaurants in Ontario, Canada for one day in November. The US trial, which was also just for one day, took place in Georgia in August. Customers queued up for several hours to get their hands on the vegan meat, which was available as a burger or popcorn chicken.

During both of these trials for the new animal-friendly products, all stocks were sold out before the end of each day.
