Our Chicken

Does Nando's Serve Halal Chicken?

Some of our restaurants serve Halal chicken. For all the detail on Halal chicken including where and why we serve it, who supplies it and how we publicise it click here.

Who Supplies You With Chicken?

All of our chicken is British and is fresh, never frozen. We use several suppliers including; Cargill, Moy Park, Faccenda, Freemans of Newent and 2Sisters.

Do You Use Battery Chicken?

No. All of our chickens are barn reared to Red Tractor standard. The majority of our chickens are raised in sheds with natural light and with access to welfare enrichment such as perches, hay bales and pecking objects.

What Welfare Enrichment Do You Provide?

All of our chickens are reared in deep littered, well-ventilated barns with constant access to food and water. Hay bales, perches and pecking objects are also used in the majority of our sheds to encourage natural behaviour.

What Are You Doing To Improve Welfare?

We insist that all of our suppliers adhere to Red Tractor standards. As part of a continuous review of our suppliers, we continue in the search for practical welfare improvements.

Why Don’t You Use Free Range Chicken?

Nando’s prides itself in offering great tasting food at great value. Chicken welfare is of utmost importance however we also need to consider the price our customers are willing to pay. We continue to engage with our suppliers in the search for practical welfare improvements.

How Do You Ensure That The Farms Which Supply You Chicken Comply With Your Standards?

All of our suppliers hold Red Tractor industry standard accreditation which is strictly regulated. In addition we employ an independent auditing company and our internal technical team also undertake regular visits to all our suppliers. We are confident that these processes ensure that the chicken we serve meets the high standard which our customers demand.

How Is Nando's Chicken Cooked?

Our chickens are marinated for at least 24 hours before being cooked. Every oven in Nando’s kitchens is pre-programmed to ensure chicken is cooked thoroughly and each batch is temperature checked before serving to ensure it has reached at least 75 degrees. Each chicken is then flame-grilled to order.

Sauces

Is There A Difference Between Nando's PERi-PERi Sauces Sold In The Restaurant And The Supermarkets?

There may be a slight flavour difference in the sauces used in our restaurants and the ones you can buy in the supermarkets. This is because the sauces used in our restaurants are made in the UK, but the ones sold in supermarkets come all the way from South Africa for your personal PERi-PERi delight. The recipes are the same, but the taste may vary a bit depending on the source of the ingredients.

Allergies and Nutrition

I Have A Food Allergy, Can I Check The Ingredients Of Any Of The Items You Serve?

We want to make sure everyone can enjoy their Nando's experience with us. In every restaurant we have a 'Food and Menu Specifications' book, which tells you all the ingredients in every product we have (it's a pretty big book!). If you do have an allergy, please let us know when you order so we can make double sure your meal is prepared with the utmost care to minimise cross-contamination. You can also have a look on our website here, and filter by dietary requirement if you want to take a look before hand.

Where Can I Find Your Nutritional Information?

Whether you're protein packing for those gym gains, or watching your figure (we think you look lovely), all of our nutritional information can be found on our menu here.

Do You Use Pasteurised Egg In Any Of Your Products?

If there's egg in the ingredients of a certain product, it'll be pasteurised - it's the only way to use egg safely. If you want to find out which of our products have pasteurised egg in, have a look at our 'Food and Menu Specifications' book, which can be found in any of our restaurants. Just ask any member of the team and they'll get it for you!

Is There Anything On Your Menu Suitable For Vegetarians?

Nando's are not a vegetarian restaurant, but we do offer non-meat products on our menu which can be seen here. We take specific steps to segregate our non-meat from our meat products: We choose a specific part of the grill for cooking only non-meat products Separate utensils are always used with non-meat products Separate bottles of the Nando’s bastes are used exclusively for basting the non-meat products. Full ingredient listings are available in all of our restaurants, just ask the duty manager to see the Food and Menu Specification Folder when you visit. We'd recommend telling the restaurant team when you order that you're a vegetarian, just to ensure they're extra careful!

Is There Anything On Your Menu Suitable For Vegans?

Nando's are not a vegan restaurant, but we do offer non-meat products on our menu which can be seen here. You can filter by dietary requirement on the left hand side to only display the vegan options we offer. We’d recommend our Veggie Pitta, but you need to specify “no mayonnaise” as mayo is a standard ingredient containing egg. Our bastes are all meat, egg and dairy free, so you can choose which ever you want.
