International fast food giant Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) is currently developing a vegan chicken burger in the United Kingdom.

According to television presenter Nisha Katona, the Louisville, Kentucky-based company has created a vegan chicken burger in its UK development kitchen.

Katona, a chef and food writer, said the exclusive access granted to her by the company allowed her to test out the new vegan sandwich before it becomes publicly available.

“Oh my heaven! On a dream job today- filming for the BBC One Show with exclusive access to the actual KFC headquarters development kitchen,” Katona wrote in a tweet.

“Also I was the first member of the public to taste the new vegan chicken burger. This to me is actually living the dream.”

While Katona stated that the company is still developing the burger, she also wrote that even at this point it is “brilliant” and fans “have much to look forward to.”

There is no word on when the company plans to release the vegan burger in the United Kingdom, but vegans and vegetarians in some other countries can enjoy veggie chicken sandwiches at KFC.

In Vietnam, KFC offers a vegan menu, launched last year, which includes a chicken sandwich, as well as a rice bowl salad complete with shredded vegan chicken on top.

In March, it was revealed that KFC was planning to provide customers more vegan options as demand for plant-based food grows.

The company said it plans to offer options that will “not let vegans down.”

Jack Hinchcliffe, innovation director at KFC, told The Telegraph: “Veganism as a trend has really blown up.”

“For us, it’s about taking the amazing tastes of KFC and offering those in a vegetarian or vegan alternative,” he added.
