Meatless nuggets will be available in all German restaurants from September onwards. The cooperation with The Vegetarian Butcher will thus be continued.
"Zero chicken, but 100 % delicious" is how Germany's second largest catering company advertises its new plant-based nuggets. With this vegetarian alternative, Burger King is expanding its cooperation with Unilever's The Vegetarian Butcher brand. The range has already included a Plant-based Whopper, the company's signature burger in a meat-free version, for around a year.
The new meat-free and plant-based nuggets are said to be in no way inferior in taste to the original. A breading of deep-fried batter covers the soy-based nuggets. There is also a selection of vegan dips, such as classic ketchup or Sweet & Sour Dip.
Hugo Verkuil, CEO of The Vegetarian Butcher, says: "We are delighted to extend our collaboration with our colleagues at Burger King and together we have created a product that we are sure guests will love! The nuggets are soft and meaty on the inside, crispy and golden on the outside and offer a delicious vegetable-based alternative for all meat lovers who want to reduce their meat consumption".
