    -  Canadian-made trans fat free canola cooking oil being phased in
       immediately
    -  The trans fat free cooking oil delivers the same great KFC taste that
       customers have come to love with zero grams of trans fat in the
       Colonel's Original Recipe Chicken
    -  Nearly all of KFC Canada's menu items will have zero grams of
       trans fat early in the new year
    >>

    TORONTO, Oct. 30 /CNW/ - As of today, KFC Canada will immediately begin
to phase in a Canadian-made trans fat free canola cooking oil, and virtually
all of the menu items will be zero grams of trans fat when the trans fat free
cooking oil conversion is completed in the new year.
    "Our goal has been to continue to provide our customers with the best
quality Canadian products possible," said Jeff O'Neill, President and COO of
the Priszm Canadian Income Fund. "After intensive research, development and
testing, we have a Canadian-made trans fat free cooking oil that provides all
the same delicious taste as our original recipes. Thanks to our many Canadian
suppliers, with the trans fat free cooking oil conversion, nearly all our menu
items will have zero grams of trans fat and the same great KFC taste that our
customers have come to love."
    By early 2007, virtually the entire KFC Canada menu will contain zero
grams of trans fat. In addition, KFC Canada's preliminary nutritional analysis
has also shown that with the new trans fat free cooking oil saturated fat
levels in many products have decreased, on average, 40 per cent.
    The trans fat free Canadian-made canola cooking oil is being phased in,
through the month of November in all KFC Canada restaurants in
British Columbia and the Maritime provinces, followed by Quebec and Ontario
with all 786 KFC Canada restaurants converted by early next year.
    "Our KFC customers have told us this was important to them and we made
this our priority. And now they can enjoy our delicious food without the trans
fat. That's all that matters to us," added O'Neill.
    KFC Canada continues to offer a variety of menu items allowing customers
several choices of great-tasting and wholesome foods, including fresh green
salad, along with our growing lineup of grilled items including our grilled
chicken entrée salads, grilled chicken Twisters and our new Grilled Chicken
sandwich.

    nutritional chart

    KFC is beginning its transition to trans fat free cooking oil - canola
oil. A product of Canada, KFC carefully selected and tested this high-oleic,
low-linolenic blend that provides a significant reduction in trans fat levels
without compromising that wonderful KFC flavour. Preliminary results of
laboratory analyses(1) of KFC products cooked in the new canola oil had an
overall reduction of 90 per cent in grams of trans fat per serving. Additional
analyses are underway to validate preliminary findings.
