Burger King has launched vegan nuggets for the first time in the UK and aims to go 50% meat-free by 2030.
Burger King’s vegan nugs are the UK’s first ever vegan nuggets from a fast food chain restaurant. They are certified as 100% vegan from the Vegan Society, and have been created in collaboration with The Vegetarian Butcher; containing soy and plant proteins only.
The vegan nuggets, which come with a vegan sweet chilli dip, are available in servings of six, nine or 20 nuggets.
Soco Nunez, Brand and Communications Director at Burger King UK said: “We are thrilled to be launching the new Vegan Nuggets to our UK restaurants. After years of development, it’s great to be able to say we are the first fast-food restaurant to bring such a product to our customers, which delivers the same tasting experience as its meat counterpart!”
Laura Iliffe, Senior Brand Manager and Away from Home Lead, The Vegetarian Butcher added: “We know that nearly a quarter of Brits are looking at cutting down on their meat intake, which is why this Veganuary we are collaborating again with Burger King to hack one of their best-loved products, the chicken nugget, with a delicious alternative. At The Vegetarian Butcher we believe you don’t need sacrifice a thing when eating plant-based, and Veganuary is a great time to try out a new way of eating – we defy anyone to tell the difference between our version and the original!”
