Unilever’s plant-based brand The Vegetarian Butcher, has partnered with Burger King South Africa to deliver high-quality meatless fast-food options. With the shift towards plant-based eating, your chain should consider serving vegan and vegetarian alternatives, and we have the solutions to help you do that with ease.
A Shift Towards Meatless Fast-Food with Burger King
South Africa has been slow to introduce vegan options compared to the rest of the world, but that seems to be changing. Burger King South Africa is the first chain to introduce meatless fast-food menu options in partnership with The Vegetarian Butcher – Unilever Food Solutions’ sole supplier of vegan patties for Burger King.
The Vegetarian Butcher has worked closely with Burger King to deliver 100% plant-based solutions with 0% meat and the same great taste. These exciting meat-free offerings include the meatless version of the popular Whopper, Vegan Royale, and chicken-free nuggets.
"By working with The Vegetarian Butcher and V-Label, which is administered by ProVeg international, we know we can create the industry’s leading vegan and vegetarian recipes,” Marketing Executive, Ezelna Jones, said.
The Vegetarian Butcher Is Changing the Game
The Vegetarian Butcher, a Unilever brand, is “the traditional butcher of the past, with the meat of today,” delivering high-quality products that provide the same great taste without the meat.
Culinary High-Quality Products
We deliver high-quality products that capture the flavour of animal meat to give your meat-loving customers the same great taste and your vegan customers the meat-free alternative they are looking for.
Taking the Animal Out
Our mission is to free animals from the food chain by offering a complete and delicious meat-free alternative. This provides considerable benefits in terms of efficiency, nature, environment, climate, biodiversity, the world food supply, and animal welfare.
Better for the Environment
Cattle emit greenhouse gasses with environmental disadvantages. Our plant-based products are based on soy and have a smaller carbon footprint compared to that of real meat.
Our Vegan Solutions Can Enhance Your Menu
With the growing trends towards plant-based menu offerings, we are here to partner with your businesses to expand your menu, help you stay on top of the latest trends, and expand your target market to cater to your meat-free customers.
Our vegan solutions make offering plant-based alternatives simple and easy so that you can serve high-quality meat-free dishes with the same great taste.
There is a global need for plant-based menu offerings, and this need is increasing in South Africa, starting with Burger King South Africa’s introduction of meat-free alternatives. Your chain should consider introducing vegan and vegetarian options on your menu with The Vegetarian Butcher so you can expand your menu and stay on top of the latest plant-based trends.
