A new free guide to vegan fried chicken is being offered to takeaways so they can meet skyrocketing demand.

Vegan charity PETA compiled the guide, saying interest in vegan eating is at an all-time high.

In addition, it says, the takeaway market is booming because of the pandemic. As a result, vegan fried chicken and other meat alternatives are becoming more popular.

The Guide to Vegan Fried Chicken for Takeaway Businesses is available here.

The digital magazine “highlights the top vegan food brands. These include THIS, Oumph!, and Quorn. It also lists the popular vegan chicken options offered at KFC, Nando’s, and Pizza Hut.”

On top of that, it showcases information about the “rapidly growing vegan food market.” It notes that 65 percent of Britons now opt for vegan meat and that “less than half of Generation Z describe themselves as meat-eaters.”

Dawn Carr is PETA director of vegan corporate projects. She said: “It’s never been easier for chicken shops to spare gentle birds the abattoir knife by adding vegan options to their menus.

“PETA’s new resource will help takeaways cash in on the booming demand for plant-based meats with delicious vegan wings, burgers, nuggets, and so much more.” 

Pandemic risk

PETA added that eating animals plays a role in future pandemic risk.

It said: “Numerous influenza viruses originated on chicken and pig farms, where animals endure close confinement and are made to live in their own waste. 

“These farms are every bit as filthy as China’s wet markets, creating a perfect breeding ground for deadly pathogens to emerge.”
