KFC adds vegan ice cream to its menus across China

The latest move is part of the company’s series of forays to integrate plant-based alternatives.

KFC has added Oatly’s vegan ice cream to its menus across China, part of a partnership with the oat drink company.

As first reported by VegNews, the fast food chain is using Oatly’s oat milk-based ice cream in strawberry and chocolate flavours.

The new options come in single-serve containers for 12 yuan each (approx. $1.86). 

KFC recently added a latte-flavored soft serve made with Oatly’s coffee mix. In April last year, it tested plant-based chicken nuggets made by Cargill in Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Shenzhen. 

In June 2020, Yum China tested Beyond Meat’s Beyond Burger on its menu at five locations in Beijing, Chengdu, Hangzhou, and Shanghai.
