BEHIND THE BUCKET


We’re not just about the chicken (although ours is always Finger Lickin’ Good). We’re also about making a positive social and environmental impact – which includes becoming a net-zero business, helping people get a foot on the work ladder, caring for our communities, and offering balanced food choices. There’s more Behind the Bucket than you think.

Our Chicken


You won’t be surprised to learn that at KFC, the chicken matters. It’s who we are, and what we do. We’re really proud to lead the way in our sector on welfare standards – and have just been awarded top spot in World Animal Protection’s Pecking Order rankings for 2021.

OUR PLANET


We’re hungry to become a fully circular, zero waste business by 2035, as well as becoming a net zero carbon business by 2040 at the latest – and we recently launched a partnership with University of Liverpool’s Zero Carbon Research Institute to help us get there. In addition to that, we’re taking steps towards more responsible sourcing and tackling food waste by keeping the skin on our fries (who knew!). Find out what else is in our planet saving recipe.

WASTE & CIRCULARITY


We’re committed to becoming a zero waste business. From working towards making 100% of our packaging recyclable or compostable to saving an extra 7,000 tonnes of food waste, we’re on our way. And that’s only the start of it.

ENERGY & CLIMATE


We’re taking action on climate by committing to being Net Zero by 2040 at the latest. We know that running a busy restaurant like KFC takes a lot of energy (and we’re not just talking about elbow grease), so we’ve been introducing energy-saving measures and gadgets across all our restaurants.

RESPONSIBLE SOURCING


When it comes to sourcing, our principles are simple – respect and protect our people, drive transparency, promote integrity, and reduce risk in our supply chain. And we only work with others who share our values.

OUR FOOD


Our fried chicken is the star of the show. It’s freshly prepared, hand-breaded and protein-rich. There’s something for everyone - from burgers to buckets - and we’re always working to make our food even more Finger Lickin’ Good.

OUR PEOPLE


From our teams on the fryers to those in head office, KFC UKI is a 27,000-strong family. And we’re here to support every single one of them.

SOCIAL IMPACT


We don’t just fill the UK and Ireland with delicious chicken, we help fill it with potential too. We do that by empowering young people through The KFC Foundation, and raising vital funds for mentoring and safe spaces with Comic Relief.
