BURGER KING USING BEEF FROM COWS THAT BURP AND FART LESS
FARTING COWS LEARN MANNERS FOR BURGER KING
Burger King announced Tuesday that it has made a shift in its operations to ensure its cows fart and burp less to fight climate change.
The company — the second-largest fast-food hamburger chain in the world
Said it added 100 grams of lemongrass leaves to its cows’ prescribed diet during the animals’ last four months of life.
It is to help them release less of the greenhouse gas methane into the atmosphere, according to a news release.
The new diet is said to reduce up to 33% of methane emissions per day, on average,
in the months before they are turned into the company’s famous Whopper burger.
“This is an open source approach to a real problem,”
Fernando Machado, global chief marketing officer of Restaurant Brands International, said in the release.
“If the whole industry, from farmers, meat suppliers, and other brands join us,
We can increase scale and collectively help reduce methane emissions that affect climate change.”
Scientists from Mexico and California helped Burger King develop the new diet, according to the release,
with the goal of addressing the environmental impact of beef.
