Burger King has come under fire after it announced a whole-food burger that contains ingredients from the “soup industry” and a “frozen meat” bar.
The announcement comes just two days after the chain said it was changing its “sustainable” food sourcing policy, which aims to reduce the amount of animal products in its supply chain by 30%.
Burger King said it would use only sustainable ingredients to make its burgers.
It said the burgers, which will also include chicken, are the first of its kind to be certified organic and will use local ingredients.
But the company’s chief executive, Mark Fields, defended the move, saying: “We are creating a burger that’s not just a burger but a full meal with delicious flavours.”
It’s not a meat burger, it’s not an egg burger, but it’s definitely a burger.
“But the backlash was swift.
Vegan burger maker the Vegan Revolution said the move “would be a step backwards for anyone who has eaten a vegan burger, whether it’s from a food co-op, a local supermarket or an independent restaurant”.
The burger is made using a process called “vegan searing”, which involves cutting off the skin from a pig’s carcass, separating the fat and then separating the meat from the bones.
It is then grilled and served with vegan cheese, soy sauce, mayonnaise and sour cream.
“Our policy ensures that we have the same quality of meat and veg in our burgers that our customers expect.” “
We have always had a policy that our burgers are sourced from sustainable, organic and non-GMO, but our new policy will ensure that we can continue to meet the demand for these products while still being compliant with the law,” a spokesperson said.
“Our policy ensures that we have the same quality of meat and veg in our burgers that our customers expect.”
The spokesperson said that while the burgers would be made from 100% organic beef and chicken, it had been “extensively testing” the meat, egg and cheese before deciding which parts of the meat were sustainable.
The spokesperson added that while some parts of burgers would still contain animal products, it did not mean that all meat or animal products would be used.
Vegan revolution campaigner Matt McGorry, who has been vegan for 25 years, said: “I am outraged that this new burger will be made with non-organic beef and pork, which has no connection to the animal that it is based on, but is still produced in factory farms.”
This new burger is another step backwards in an already bad vegan menu.
The Burger King campaign is part of a growing trend of restaurants making the ethical choice to make their burgers vegetarian, vegan or even vegan-friendly.
“I’m sure the majority of burger lovers will still be pleased with the results of this burger, and I hope they’ll keep their vegan friends up to date on the latest developments in the vegan burger industry.”
Vegan burger chain ‘vegans are like a second-class citizen’ The Vegan Revolution has previously called on Burger King to end its “viral” campaign of misleading consumers about veganism and said it did “not condone” its use of “animal products”. “
It looks like the burgers they are making are going to be a real hit.”

“If you look at Burger King’s vegan burgers, they are made with 100% whole animal meat and pork,” Matt McGourry, vegan campaign director at Vegan Revolution, told News24.
Mr McGorry said the company was “playing politics with the word” and was encouraging people to “choose from the whole menu” instead. “
The fact that Burger King is still selling vegan burgers despite having changed its sourcing policy is a disgrace and proves that they still support the exploitation of animals and are still using their own product to promote their vegan agenda.”
Mr McGorry said the company was “playing politics with the word” and was encouraging people to “choose from the whole menu” instead.
He said the new Burger King vegan burger would be “a massive step backwards” for anyone. “
If they wanted to make the vegan Burger King burger without using any animal products they would be able to do so, and the vegan meat and cheese would still be used, but they are not doing so.”
He said the new Burger King vegan burger would be “a massive step backwards” for anyone.
“I hope that people continue to look to Burger King for the authentic, delicious and tasty vegan burger they know and love.”
Burger King is playing politics with people’s food and is encouraging people who are looking for the best burger in the world to choose from the vegan menu instead.
