SA’s most plant-based friendly fast food chains ranked
In total, 23 fast-food franchise restaurants were assessed based on varied criteria, centred largely around the number of plant-based items available on their menus.
In the top six spots for the period ending February 2022 were Kauai, Spur Steak Ranches, Panarottis, Burger King, Simply Asia, and Steers, with other franchises like Nando’s, RocoMamas and KFC trailing behind.
“While the ranking report highlights a few franchises that do have good plant-based options, the biggest takeaway should be the numerous opportunities available to those franchises that don’t have any, as well as opportunities for local food manufacturers who can supply the franchises with these plant-based alternatives,” says Donovan Will, ProVeg South Africa country director.
ProVeg SA is the South African chapter of ProVeg International, an international food awareness organisation working to transform the global food system by replacing conventional animal products with plant-based and cultivated alternatives.
Worldwide, there has been a notable positive shift in consumer perception toward plant-based eating, causing food producers and service providers to scramble to innovate, produce and serve plant-based foods to cater to the growing market.
Driven mainly by flexitarians, these changes are not overlooked by the fast-food industry that is readily embracing the transformations in their consumer demands.
