KFC Singapore announces “world-first” organic recycling pilot
The pilot sees dine-in packaging and leftover food waste turned to compost.
KFC Singapore has partnered with sustainable foodware company Tria for what they claim is a world-first closed-loop pilot for single-use packaging.
The six-month trial, which started earlier this month at the chain’s Northpoint City outlet, sees its dine-in packaging and leftover food waste turned to compost using accelerated digestion technologies, from which fertilisers are extracted and sent to farms.
KFC told local media it intends to implement this programme to all of its 80 outlets in Singapore if the pilot is successful.
