KFC Canada announced today that it will begin testing a new compostable, fibre-based “spork” at select restaurants in December, 2020.

The new “spork,” which combines a fork and spoon into one is made from a compostable mixture of bamboo, corn and sugarcane.

According to the company, the spork breaks down into biomass, carbon dioxide and water through a natural process that requires no additional treatment and leaves no toxic by-products, taking only 18-months to decompose.

Once introduced as a permanent piece of cutlery, KFC says it will eliminate 40 million pieces of plastic waste from its operations.
