KFC PLANS TO DEBUT VEGAN CHICKEN IN US
Fast-food chain Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) may before long add vegan chicken to its menu in the United States as indicated by organization president Kevin Hochman.
“If you would have asked me six months ago, I would have said no, to be completely honest with you. Because, we’re about fried chicken,” Hochman disclosed to Business Insider about the possibility of vegan meat at KFC.
“Never say never. I would have said never six months ago. Now, I’ve really re-thought that. We’re going to learn more about that … It still feels a little early, but we’re going to learn about it.”
Plant-based “meat” has been sweeping the fast-food industry in recent months.
While Hochman did not set up a course of events for adding vegan chicken to KFC’s menu, he revealed that the corporation is hoping to examine plant-based choices with a few brands.
“In the last two weeks, I’ve made several appointments with some of the big guys, just to figure out—what does alternative protein look like in chicken?” Hochman added.
In the United Kingdom, KFC is further along in its improvement of a vegan chicken choice which will probably appear as a burger that was as of late taste-tried by BBC writer Nisha Katona.
Oh my heaven! On a dream job today- filming for the BBC One Show with exclusive access to the actual KFC headquarters development kitchen. Also I was the first member of the public to taste the new vegan chicken burger. This to me is actually living the dream. pic.twitter.com/k1dIwJNI7q— Nisha Katona (@NishaKatona) May 3, 2019Advertisement
