KFC is now using Canola oil to cook the food you love
KFC has switched oils. We’ve introduced canola oil, sourced entirely from Australian farmers, to cook our food in store. The new oil rolled out across all KFC Australian restaurants in May 2012, delivering the same great taste you know and love.
KFC is using high oleic canola oil, which is a mono-unsaturated fat. High oleic is a kind of oil that originates from special varieties of traditional canola crops. We have been testing this oil in our Tasmanian stores since October 2010, ensuring the transition to canola oil has no impact on the iconic KFC taste that we know you all love.
We’re even more excited to announce that our canola oil will be 100% sourced from Australian farmers; just another example of how KFC provides Australians with local ingredients.
We have partnered with reputable canola suppliers Cargill, Integro Foods, and MSM Milling to supply the oil nationally.
We are proud of the association we have with Australian farmers across the spectrum of our menu. 100% of our chicken is locally sourced, as is our flour, and all our fresh produce. In fact, most of our food and food ingredients comes from local Australian farms. Our move to canola oil is an extension of our partnership with the Australian farming community and further investment in the local Australian economy.
