Naturally Fast Food brand LEON is the first fast food brand to serve a carbon-neutral burger and fries range in its restaurants in support of their commitment to reach Net Zero by 2030.
Launched as part of a new menu the carbon neutral items make it easier for guests to learn more about the environmental impact of their food choices and choose options which lower their own personal carbon footprint, as LEON continues with its commitment to offer food that tastes good, does you good, is affordable and is kind to the planet.
LEON is measuring, reducing and offsetting the carbon footprint of their burgers and fries, with support from solution provider ClimatePartner.
This is done by measuring the CO2 emissions from the whole supply chain which includes all LEON’s ingredients, any packaging used and its waste, as well as emissions from prep in their restaurant kitchens. LEON uses 100% green electricity (no gas) in its kitchens supplied by Ecotricity.
The carbon neutral dishes include the new Crispy Chicken Parm and Vegan Sweet Carolina BBQ burgers, as well as the new recipe LOVe Burger, Fish Finger Burger and Chargrilled Chicken Burgers, and their baked waffle fries.
LEON’s popular LOVe burger is now made with a new recipe pea protein patty from plant based producer Meatless Farm, which has also helped the menu item have a lower impact.
The carbon footprint of these menu items will be offset with rainforest conservation projects in South America, as well as a progressive new afforestation project in the UK.
Most recently, LEON launched a Vegan Subscription Service, £6 for a 30% discount for the month and vegan LOVe burger kits for home delivery, which are also carbon neutral, are further ways in which the brand is making it easier for people to eat more plants and be kinder to the planet.
Nemi teas are also a new addition to LEON’s menu, a truly responsible London brand with plastic free teabags and biodegradable packaging, their products are also triple certified as Organic, Fairtrade and Rainforest-Alliance.
