McDonald’s new McPlant burger – which is currently testing in select markets globally – will feature a Beyond Meat plant-based patty, as part of a three-year strategic agreement between the two brands.
In addition to the McPlant patty, Beyond Meat and McDonald’s will also explore co-developing other plant-based menu items – like plant-based options for chicken, pork and egg – as part of McDonald’s larger McPlant platform.
Last November, Chew Boom reported McDonald’s plans to test the new McPlant burger at select locations in the US in 2021.
The partnership reinforces the relationship between McDonald’s and Beyond Meat, which began in 2019 with the Canadian test of a sandwich made with Beyond Meat’s plant-based patty.
