KFC Canada has announced its plant-based sandwiches will be available permanently countrywide.
After a successful pilot with plant-based partner Lightlife in 2019, vegetarians and flexitarians everywhere can now experience the sandwiches at their local restaurant.
“When we tested Plant-Based KFC late last year, we sold more than a month’s worth of sandwiches in six hours,” said KFC Canada’s chief marketing officer Samantha Redman. “Seeing the extraordinary demand for Plant-Based KFC, we worked quickly to bring these menu items to our restaurants across Canada.”
Developed in response to Canada’s evolving tastes and preferences for plant-based proteins, Plant-Based KFC is made in Canada by Lightlife, a leading plant-based protein brand whose products are sold by retailers such as Metro, Loblaws, Sobeys, Save On Foods, and Longo’s. “Lightlife is excited to continue on this journey with KFC, providing Canadians with plant-based foods that deliver on incredible taste and are more broadly available to consumers who know balance is essential to living well,” said Dan Curtin, president of Greenleaf Foods, the parent company of Lightlife.
Plant-Based KFC popcorn chicken will be available for a limited time while quantities last. The duo can be ordered individually, as part of a combo, or as part of a box meal.
