Jose Cil, CEO of Restaurant Brands International, reflected on 2020 in an open letter and highlighted some of the changes the company made throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and the lessons that were learned.
“Nearly a year ago, Burger King launched a viral campaign showing the iconic Whopper sandwich covered in mold to demonstrate the beauty of no artificial preservatives. The soundtrack was from Aretha Franklin singing, ‘what a difference a day made,” Cil wrote. “I was reflecting on that campaign, and all the other plans we had in the first quarter of 2020 before countries, companies and families around the world reset all their priorities to focus on winning our most important fight in a generation.”
The company worked to improve the quality of their food, which included “making the Whopper free of colors, flavors and preservatives from artificial sources,” Cil wrote.
“we like to keep it real just like our menu. so we’re removing colors from artificial sources from our food. #KeepItReal” Burger King’s Twitter account said.
