Not so finger-licking good: Australia’s KFC swaps lettuce for cabbage

Fast food giant KFC is forced to replace lettuce with cabbage in its products in Australia. The popular restaurant chain said Tuesday (June 7) that high lettuce prices in the country have led the company to adopt a sprout mix in burgers and other dishes. However, customers don’t like it. The change has prompted complaints from customers as the result is less than “finger-licking good”.

The Colonel’s famous recipe was changed in some stories after the local price of green leaf shot up 300% in the past few months.

The company said the reason for the recipe change was widespread flooding in the east of the country.

KFC Australia on its website said: “Due to recent flooding in New South Wales [New South Wales] and Queensland [Queensland] we are currently experiencing a shortage of lettuce. »

“So we are using a mix of lettuce and cabbage on all lettuce-containing products until further notice,” it read.

He added: “If that’s not your bag, just click ‘Customise’ on your chosen product and remove the lettuce from the recipe.”

Meanwhile, supply chain expert Flavio Macau from Edith Cowan University said, quoted by AFP news agency, that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine was also a vital factor. The ongoing war has driven up diesel and fertilizer prices around the world.

Notably, a single head of iceberg lettuce in Sydney or Melbourne that once sold for around $2 now costs nearly $8.

However, customers don’t like it. One of the Twitter users wrote: “The fact that you replace lettuce with cabbage makes me rethink my whole meal at KFC. There are 4 or 5 other things I would eat before cabbage. It’s a choice so weird.”

Another wrote, “Looks like a sign of the apocalypse.”
