KFC and Beyond Meat Partner Up to Sell Vegan Fried Chicken

By

Earlier this summer, Kentucky Fried Chicken's U.S. president Kevin Hochman revealed that KFC was experimenting with a vegan chicken option for U.S. locations of the fried chicken destination. And now, just in time to outshine the controversial Popeyes chicken sandwich, KFC has partnered with Beyond Meat to trial a plant-based fried chicken option — and for the time being, the trial is very limited.

Beyond Meat shared the exciting news in a press release on Monday. Beginning Tuesday, Aug. 27, the KFC located on Cobb Parkway in Atlanta will offer both vegan nuggets and boneless wings. The wings can be tossed in one of three sauces: Nashville Hot, Buffalo, or Honey BBQ. (A spokesperson for Beyond Meat tells Green Matters that the sauces are considered vegetarian, not vegan.)
