The world’s first meatless Burger King will open for a limited time in Cologne, Germany, later this month. The menu will be fully vegan and is expected to include Burger King’s signature meat alternatives from plant-based nuggets, Whoppers and Vegan Chicken Royales.

The vegan Burger King is expected to open for just four days from June 7 until June 11.

The chain is working with Dutch plant-based meat company, The Vegetarian Butcher, to open the fully vegan restaurant.

During this time frame, Burger King restaurants across Germany will also debut a vegan mayonnaise. It is currently unknown whether the chain will develop more dairy-free cheese and vegan condiments for the new restaurant.

It comes as Burger King France announced the launch of a new veggie burger. While some are pleased with the menu addition, others have criticised the fact the burger has cheese and therefore is not vegan.

One customer said on Twitter: “Might as well make it vegan, right?”

Another replied: “A veggie burger! Seriously!?! What a bunch of players. A vegan burger was too dangerous? Pay for the courage and innovation with a veggie in 2021.”

Burger King has worked with the Vegetarian Butcher in recent years to develop new plant-based menu items that now range across 25 countries. The partnership is responsible for the UK’s Vegan Chicken Royale, China’s Plant-Based Whopper and Mexico’s Whopper Vegetal.

Burger King UK’s CEO Alasdair Murdoch announced earlier this year that he hopes to transition Burger King UK to be 50 percent plant-based within the next decade.

Mr Murdoch told iNews: “Over time the amount of beef that we are selling as a proportion of our total sales is reducing.

“We know the direction of travel, we are embracing the direction of travel and we are trying to get ahead of it. But we are also still very proud of our beef.”
