The fast-food chain has launched its first meat-free restaurant in Germany in June 2021 following huge demand.

Additionally, the chain welcomed its second vegan venue in Spain just four months later.

Burger King’s green initiative comes as a response to the growing battle against climate change and calls to reduce meat consumption.
