VAUGHAN, Ont. — KFC Canada announced today that plant-based KFC sandwiches will be available permanently coast-to-coast following an incredibly successful pilot with plant-based partner Lightlife in 2019.
“When we tested Plant-Based KFC by Lightlife late last year, we sold more than a month’s worth of sandwiches in six hours,” says Samantha Redman, Chief Marketing Officer, KFC Canada. “Seeing the extraordinary demand for Plant-Based KFC, we worked quickly to bring these menu items to our restaurants across Canada.”
The Plant-Based KFC sandwich will be available permanently beginning August 10, and Plant-Based KFC Popcorn 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.
“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,” says Dan Curtin, president of Greenleaf Foods, SPC, the owner of Lightlife. “The Plant-Based KFC sandwich delivers the same great taste of chicken — but made with plants.”
