Wow! KFC India to replace plastic packaging with edible bowls!
KFC is introducing edible serving bowls in India by this week in a bid to make its products more eco-friendly.
New Delhi: Folks, feast your eyes on the new KFC 'serving bowls' – that will get you smacking your lips, licking your fingers. Not kidding, but you might even end up eating them and the good thing is that they won't charge more for that.
As per reports, KFC is introducing edible serving bowls in India by this week in a bid to make its products more eco-friendly.
The new initiative means, you can also eat up the packaging made from tortilla after when you are done eating the food. The edible tortilla bowls will replace the plastic packaging used for the chain's Rice Bowlz, an India-specific dish and one of KFC India's best-selling items.
KFC's green initiative will do away with the plastic bowls, thus avoiding unnecessary wastage of packaging material while saving the planet.
The fast food restaurant chain said that it won't charge more for edible bowls.
"We will not charge more for our edible bowls," Rahul Shinde, MD of KFC India, was quoted as saying.
The edible bowls are an "India-first innovation," Shinde added.
He hinted that the new move could be adopted in KFC's global markets if they prove popular - as was the case with KFC Krushers, originally launched in India.
In 2015, KFC announced plans to launch edible coffee cups in the UK. Named as the 'Scoff-ee Cup', the edible coffee cup is made from biscuit, wrapped in sugar paper, and lined with a layer of heat-resistant white chocolate.
Initially, the edible bowls will be available at KFC outlets in Bangalore. It may be noted that the Karnataka government has recently banned plastic, for a trial period beginning April 28.
