What a story! Burger King in Copenhagen is going meatless for a month

No traditional Whoppers
Burger King promises its popular Whopper burger will retain its flavor despite going ‘green’ as it will still be flame-grilled.

Customers craving the traditional meat-based Whopper will have to go to other Burger King locations.

The distributors for their plant-based burgers and other products, such as cheese and bacon, are The Vegetarian Butcher and Violife.

First time since 1979
The initiative starts on 15 March at 10am and will run for a month – the restaurant will be open 24 hours a day for the entire duration.

There will be no animal products (meat, fish, chicken or cheese) at all in the restaurant’s kitchen during that time.

However, some burgers will contain milk- or egg-based sauces, which will be clearly marked on the menu and at self-order locations

The store on Rådhuspladsen was the second Burger King to open in Denmark back in 1979.

McDonald’s throws its own curveball
Of course, Burger King is not the only burger chain to launch a surprising initiative in March.

Since March 1, it has no longer been possible to buy breakfast at McDonald’s in Denmark.

Apparently, its breakfast items, which include the McMuffin line, were no longer considered profitable.

“It is a complete tragedy that all McDonalds throughout Denmark have stopped serving breakfast. You have impacted thousands of lives,” lamented one commenter on his Facebook page.
