SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment has announced that it is adding the Impossible Burger to menus at all SeaWorld, Busch Gardens, Sesame Place and water parks across the country.
This announcement comes after the company announced the removal of single-use plastic straws and bags in 2018 and the replacement of polystyrene-foam dinnerware with 100 percent recyclable material at the parks earlier this year.
The Impossible Burger is a sustainable, plant-based burger that offers all the flavor and protein of a typical 80/20 beef burger, but with no cholesterol, less total fat, and fewer calories.
“Not only is it important that we integrate sustainable products and practices into our operations across all SeaWorld properties, but we have to satisfy our guests with a broad selection of healthy dining options – of which the Impossible Burger is an exciting addition,” said Gus Antorcha, SeaWorld CEO.
“We are proud to offer our guests menu options that both taste great and have a positive environmental impact,” said Christopher Ivy, corporate VP of In-Park Revenue at Strategic Partnerships at SeaWorld. “The Impossible Burger was initially introduced to guests as part of our popular Seven Seas and Food & Wine festivals. The response to the burger was so favorable we’ve now added it to our year-round park menus, offering additional options to our already growing list of plant-based and healthier food offerings.”
As part of the launch of the plant-based burger at its parks, SeaWorld is donating 10 percent of the proceeds of every Impossible Burger sold through Sept. 30 to the SeaWorld & Busch Gardens Conservation Fund.
