Food Promise Throughout each day, our trained cooks freshly prepare fried chicken using the Colonel’s Secret Recipe of 11 herbs & spices. It takes more than 25 minutes to hand bread and cook our chicken before it’s ready for your bucket or boxed meal. That’s why KFC has the world’s best chicken.

  • We use 100 percent real chicken raised on U.S. farms.
  • Our chicken is USDA inspected for quality before it can be delivered to our kitchens.
  • Our chicken is free of added hormones and steroids. In fact, FDA regulations prohibit the addition of hormones in poultry in the U.S.
  • By the end of 2018, all chicken purchased by KFC U.S. will be raised without antibiotics important to human medicine. You can learn more about our commitment here.
  • All of our menu items are free of food dyes (with the exception of beverages and third-party products). In addition, artificial colors and flavors will be removed from our Core products by the end of 2018.

DiversityDiversity is more than a philosophy at KFC; it is part of our founding “How We Work Together” principles. Our global culture is actively developing a workforce that is diverse in style and background, where everyone can make a difference.

COMMUNITY GRANTSThrough our Colonel’s Community Grants program, KFC U.S. Community Relations strives to make our community better by providing sponsorship, partnership and donation support for nonprofit organizations. We focus our outreach primarily on hunger relief efforts; however, some grants are available for programs and events that promote community building, as well as growth opportunities for youth in and around KFC’s hometown of Louisville, KY.
