KFC Switches to Earth-Friendly Packaging
In an effort to reduce its packaging by 1,400 tons, KFC is now switching from cardboard to recyclable and biodegradable paper wrapping for some of its products, Marketing Week reports.
The new packaging will apply to KFC’s Fillet and Zinger burgers, which will be repackaged in paper wrappers, and the Colonel’s and Variety Meals, which will move from cardboard boxes to paper bags. Next month, Mini Fillet Burgers will also move from foil to paper wrappers.
The fast food chain stopped offering eat-in meals in cardboard boxes last year.
Last month, KFC’s parent company, Yum Brands, noted in its first corporate responsibility report that it had exceeded its goal of cutting emissions by 51,000 metric tons.
