Last year, we reported on KFC’s plans to launch plant-based offerings for vegans and now the popular fast-food chain has launched its first vegan burger nationwide.
Launched today (January 2) nationwide, the burger contains a quorn fillet, coated in herbs and spices and served with lettuce and vegan mayonnaise.
The nationwide rollout of the vegan burger comes after a successful trial in London, Bristol and the Midlands last summer.
Speaking on the burger, Ira Dubinsky from KFC UK and Ireland said: “The Colonel was all about welcoming everyone to his table – now vegans, flexitarians and our fried chicken fans can all enjoy the taste of our Original Recipe together.
“We’ve worked hard to perfect the flavour and make a Vegan Burger the Colonel would be proud of. It’s the flavour of KFC, just with zero chicken.”
The burger itself is priced at £3.99 and is now available in KFC restaurants up and down the UK.
