By

on

KFC is testing this initiative in select restaurants across Hyderabad, Bengaluru, Chennai and New Delhi. The company said it will make the switch from palm oil to rice bran oil across its restaurants in the country during the first quarter of 2018. The company said the rice bran oil will be sourced locally from Indian oil manufacturers.

In a statement, Rahul Shinde, Managing Director, KFC India, said, “As a brand, we continuously strive towards improving the nutrition profile of our high-quality food, without compromising on great taste. Looking at the benefits of rice bran oil, we had been testing it in select restaurants over the last few months and are now glad to make this shift across all our restaurants in the country.”

The restaurant chain said it uses 3,600 tonnes of cooking oil every month across its 300-plus restaurants in India.
