Media Statement

Press release: South Africa National Halaal Authority Publications

KFC South Africa is aware of and concerned about the recent newsletter and email publications prepared by the South African National Halaal Authority (SANHA) as the contents of these may be misleading and alarming to our Customers. KFC recognises and supports the role played by SANHA and other Halaal certification authorities in the Muslim community and would like to reassure our KFC Customers that all chicken products that are sold in our restaurants are from local South African poultry suppliers, who are certified to be Halaal. 

All of KFC’s chicken suppliers have reputable Halaal certification authorities, including SANHA in some instances, supervising and certifying their facilities and products. This has been the case since KFC started in South Africa in 1971, nothing has changed.KFC has been a loved and trusted brand for almost 5 decades in South African and our passion for food and our customers remains, and we will continue to bring our Customers the “Finger Lickin” good chicken they know and love.
