Burger King now offers vegan nuggets across the UK as part of its goal to make its menu 50% meat-free by 2030. According to the fast-food chain, the nuggets are made from soy and plant proteins and had been certified by the Vegan Society. In 2020, Burger King added a plant-based Rebel Whopper to its menu, but it was later considered not vegan-friendly because it was cooked on the same grill as meat. A vegan diet is made up of only plant-based foods such as fruits, vegetables, soy, legumes, and nuts. Burger King said its 50% meat-free goal would help reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 41%. According to the Vegan Society, there has been a large increase in the number of vegans between 2014 and 2019 in the UK. A study by London-based company Mintel showed that more than 1,000 adults in England are willing to eat less meat for health reasons. Fast-food giant Mcdonald’s has also recently added the vegan McPlant burger to its menu in the UK.
