Wake Up To Money
Kevin Brennan, chief executive of Quorn Foods is obviously delighted that his product will be sold through KFC branches, but he told Wake Up To Money that the new meat-free burger is something that the two companies have been working on for some time.
"We recognise that at a place like KFC where there's a very narrow menu they have to [launch a vegan burger] at the right time.
"We learned that with Greggs. It was similarly a long process."
He predicted "decades of growth" for the production of meat-free food.
There's a generational shift in meat consumption," he said.
Can simply lowering meat consumption be considered a thing, or is it just "half-hearted" vegetarianism?
