KFC recipe's security Print
Colonel Sander’s handwritten recipe of 11 herbs and spices was moved on 9 September 2008 from KFC’s headquarters for the first time in decades. The temporary relocation is allowing KFC to revamp security around a yellowing sheet of paper that contains one of the most famous corporate secrets.

So important is the 68-year old concoction that coats the chain’s original recipe chicken that only two company executives at any time have access to it. The company refuses to reveal their names or titles and uses multiple suppliers who produce and blend the ingredients but know only a part of the entire contents.

For more than 20 years the recipe has been tucked away in a filing cabinet equipped with two combination locks in company headquarters. To reach the cabinet, the keepers of the recipe would first open up a vault and unlock three locks on a door that stood in front of the cabinet. Vials of the herbs and spices are also stored in the secret filing cabinet.

One of the two keepers of the recipe said in an interview at KFC headquarters that the actual recipe would include some surprises.

KFC had a total of 14892 locations worldwide at the end of 2007.

SANHA has no knowledge on the KFC formula and has NOT issued certification to any KFC store.
