Burger King boss says UK menu could be plant-based by 2031

It will also opt for 100% recycled or certified packaging by 2025.

Burger King UK recently announced that it will launch vegan and vegetarian burgers, including a plant-based version of its chicken ‘Royale’ burger in the coming weeks.

Within a decade, up to 50% of Burger King UK’s menu could be plant-based, CEO Alasdair Murdoch said in an interview with i.

The inclusion of plant-based menu items comes as a part of the chain’s new sustainability charter titled Burger King for Good, done in an effort to match its practices with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In the charter, the chain has committed to reduce 30% of its food waste, and source 100% sustainable soy, timber, coffee, palm oil, tea, and paper. It also plans to combat waste by embracing campaign group WRAP’s food waste plan and will ban single-use plastic and will instead opt for 100% recycled or certified packaging by 2025.
