Restaurant chains can have a huge impact on animals, customers, and the environment when they add plant-based products to their menus. Since 2019, World Animal Protection supporters have been asking KFC to expand its test of plant-based chicken to all its locations in the US. These efforts paid off, and this year, the world’s second-largest restaurant chain responded to consumer demand by announcing it is actively trialing its plant-based Beyond Fried Chicken at all 4000 of its locations in the US. Please join us in thanking KFC and urging the chain to go a step further by making this plant-based item a permanent fixture on its menu.
The test of this plant-based addition at KFCs nationwide is great news for vegans, vegetarians, or those looking to eat less meat. It is also a big win for the countless chickens suffering at factory farms. Chickens raised for meat are some of the most abused animals on the planet, and more than 8 billion of them are killed for food each year in the US. More delicious plant-based versions of popular products on restaurant menus nationwide can help lessen the demand for animal products and reduce the number of animals bred to suffer at factory farms. What’s more, plant-based options have wide environmental benefits as they are much less resource-intensive to produce than their animal counterparts.
KFC said they are offering their plant-based chicken “while supplies last.” In order for KFC to have a long-lasting impact on people, animals, and the planet, the company must make their plant-based chicken a permanent addition to their menu, just like all their other menu items.
Join us in thanking KFC for testing this more sustainable, kinder, plant-based product nationwide, and ask them to make Beyond Fried Chicken a permanent fixture on their menu.
