Chinese fast food chain Dicos has vegan JUST Egg on their menu

Yvonne O'Halloran

One of China’s biggest fast food-chains Dicos, has added Californian start up JUST Egg to their menu! This is pretty significant since Dicos has 2,600 locations in 32 provinces and is the third largest fast food chain in China. They have recently added the JUST Egg product to more than 500 of their Dicos restaurants. Dicos is in direct competition with KFC and McDonalds.

Vegan JUST Egg, which tastes incredibly similar to regular hens eggs, is offered in three bagel sandwiches, a western breakfast plate and three breakfast burgers, however some of these meals still incorporate animal products, though you can request a vegetarian or vegan version.

The consultancy’s general manager Doris Lee said in a statement: “Dicos’ bold move offers diners in China – the world’s largest consumer of eggs – a convenient opportunity to plant-based eggs. [They] are delicious, healthier, and more sustainable.”

She added: “Global demand for plant-based foods is skyrocketing, so Dicos will have a head start in the race to capitalize on the booming alternative protein sector.”

Andrew Noyes, head of global communications at Eat Just told Tech Crunch that they first entered China in 2019 and currently generates less than 5% of its revenue from the country. But over time, the company expects China to account for more than half of its revenue. Ten of its 160 employees are based in China.
