Nov 12 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 .FTSE index is seen opening flat at 7,328 on Tuesday, according to financial bookmakers.

* UNILEVER: Patties made by Unilever Plc ULVR.L are being used by Burger King as the restaurant chain rolled out a meat-free version of its Whopper burger in 25 European countries to strengthen its foothold in the exploding market for plant-based food. CIGARETTE MAKERS: U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday he will be meeting with vaping industry representatives as his administration considers tightening e-cigarette regulations amid a nationwide outbreak of vaping-related injuries and deaths. ASTRAZENECA: AstraZeneca AZN.L said on Monday its experimental treatment significantly reduced disease activity in a late-stage study of patients with autoimmune disorder lupus. The results pit anifrolumab against GlaxoSmithKline's GSK.L Benlysta - the only new drug approved for lupus in the last 60 years. GOLD: Gold prices were flat on Tuesday, as investors looked for clues from U.S. President Donald Trump on the status of trade talks with China, while the political unrest in Hong Kong provided some support to the safe-haven metal. OIL: U.S. oil prices fell for a second day on Tuesday, weighed down by uncertainty over whether U.S.-China trade talks are making much progress, while higher Saudi Arabian crude output reinforced concerns about oversupply. The UK blue chip index slid 0.4% on Monday as a mix of rising tensions in Hong Kong, dampened U.S.-China trade sentiment and a firmer pound hit the exporter-heavy FTSE 100. UK CORPORATE DIARY:
