In Europe and the United States, vegetarian movements are particularly popular, and it was reported in December 2018 that McDonald's was paying attention to hamburgers without meat . And from August 27, 2019, it became clear that Kentucky Fried Chicken will start testing the artificial meat Beyond Meat in some parts of the United States.

A new type of chicken called `` Beyond Fried Chicken '' is not intended for vegetarians who severely restrict diets, but quasi-vegetarianism that attempts to reduce meat intake who things to be assumed as a customer. Therefore, Beyond Fried Chicken will be fried in the same fryer as regular fried chicken.



Kevin Hochman, the American representative of Kentucky Fried Chicken, said in a

May interview that `` I do not plan to use alternative meat '', but after that it seems that the schedule has been changed by meeting with multiple suppliers . This test is limited to one store in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, but the scope of the test is expected to expand further depending on customer feedback.

As of 2019, Kentucky Fried Chicken's business growth has come mostly from stores outside of the United States, and stores in the United States are forced to fight hard against other chains. Artificial meat testing is seen as a strategy to overcome this trend. In addition, the American Mexican food chain “ Deltaco ” has succeeded in increasing sales again by selling “Beyond Taco” using Beyond Meat.
