McDonald’s is set to test a new plant-based burger at select US locations in 2021, after initially testing their first plant-based burger in Canada last year.
McDonald’s describes their new McPlant burger as a “delicious plant-based burger crafted for McDonald’s, by McDonald’s, and with the kind of craveable McDonald’s flavor our customers love.”
The burger itself features a plant-based patty served on a warm, sesame seed bun with all the classic burger toppings.
While McDonald’s US is not disclosing the source of their plant-based patty, a spokesperson for Beyond Meat told CNBC that the company co-created the plant-based patty with McDonald’s.
McDonald’s plans to offer the new plant-based burger as part of a larger McPlant line.
