August 5, 2020, Vaughan, Ont. – KFC Canada announced today that Plant-Based KFC sandwiches will be available permanently coast-to-coast beginning August 10. After an incredibly successful pilot with plant-based partner Lightlife® in 2019, vegetarians and flexitarians everywhere can now experience KFC’s delicious taste at their local restaurant.
“When we tested Plant-Based KFC by Lightlife® late last year, we sold over a month’s worth of sandwiches in six hours,” said 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.”
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 portfolio of products are available in retailers such as Metro, Loblaws, Sobeys, Save On Foods and Longo’s. Lightlife is known throughout North America for its great-tasting products for consumers seeking healthier food choices and clean ingredient labels.
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.
