KFC trials vegan nuggets & boneless wings in US

Yum! Brand's subsidiary, Kentucky Fried Chicken is testing out Beyond Meat's plant-based chicken nuggets and boneless wings at a US KFC outlet.

The quick-service restaurant will roll out its vegan menu items - named Beyond Fried Chicken - nationally based on the customer feedback from the Atlanta trial.

In the States, Beyond Meat has already partnered with sandwich chain Subway, Del Taco Restaurants, Carl’s Jr, Dunkin’ Brands Group, and Restaurant Brand International’s Tim Hortons.

Beyond Meat's products can be found in over 15,000 restaurants, hotels and universities.

In June this year, KFC UK trialled a new vegan 'chicken' burger called The Impostor, which was available for four weeks in selected restaurants across London, Bristol, and the Midlands.
