KFC has announced another plant-based chicken test with two new products.
Earlier this year, KFC launched a one-day test of plant-based chicken nuggets and boneless wings by Beyond Meat, which sold out within five hours. Now, the new test will occur in Canada, in late November, where a plant-based fried chicken sandwich and plant-based popcorn chicken will be sold. KFC has partnered with Greenlife Foods, who make the two new products instead of Beyond Meat.
“We’re proud to join forces with KFC to bring Canadians a plant-based chicken with incredible taste,” said Dan Curtin, president and CEO of Greenleaf Foods. “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.”
