Burger King UK just launched vegan chicken nuggets as part of its long-term goal to be 50% meat-free by 2030.

Burger King has recently been more dedicated to finding tasty vegan alternatives to its menu items as the demand for plant-based foods has surged. The company wants to cut back its meat options by 50% in order to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 41% by 2030.

Burger King UK chief executive Alasdair Murdoch described the added menu item as, “a significant milestone for the company and an important next step in achieving our target of a 50% meat-free menu by 2030. The launch is another positive step in reducing our carbon footprint and driving innovation in our menus in response to growing demand for meatless alternatives and products with no animal protein in the UK.”

Consumers in the UK have especially shown interest in a more plant-based lifestyle. An estimated 49% are interested in meat alternatives to help them cut back.

This launch comes at the perfect time as more people are planning on committing to Veganuary and making resolutions to reduce their meat consumption in the new year.
