For the last couple of weeks, the world of vegan food news is getting exciting from the previous week with no exception. This week’s headlines were conquered by fast-food chains and for good reason: KFC is finally serving vegan chicken at its locations across the US; Burger King recently launched vegan chicken nuggets across the UK; and Domino’s UK is celebrating Veganuary with the launch of Vegan PepperoNAY, its first vegan pepperoni pizza.
KFC adds meatless chicken nationwide
After two years in development, the day has finally come: vegan fried chicken is now at KFC. Available at its 4,000 locations nationwide. This option is made in a joint venture with Beyond Meat and features all the flavors of KFC’s famous chicken but without any animal products.
Over in the UK, KFC’s vegan chicken burger—was temporarily removed from the menu after COVID hit. But, KFC has reintroduced the much-loved vegan chicken burger to its UK locations just in time for Veganuary.
