McDonald’s to launch new McPlant vegan burger

Don't miss a thing

Published on 09/09/2021

McDonald’s is launching a new fully vegan burger called the McPlant.

The new burger will be McDonald’s first fully vegan burger and will be on sale in 10 stores in Coventry from September 29.  They are expanding to 250+ stores from October 13 and nationwide in 2022.

The burger itself is based on a Quater Pounder Deluxe will retain for £3.49 and is certified by the Vegan Society.  It is served with a slice of vegan cheese made of pea protein, a plant-based sandwich sauce, lettuce, onion, tomato, pickles, ketchup and mustard.  

The new burger is being made by a US firm, ‘Beyond Meat‘ who made the patty made from yellow peas, coconut, potato and beetroot juice.

Francesca DeBiase, of McDonald’s, said the McPlant, ‘is all about giving customers more choices.

‘We’re excited to work with Beyond Meat to drive innovation and this is an important step on our journey to bring high-quality, plant-based menu items to our customers.’

Many other fast food outlets are serving more vegan choices due to customer demand.  Greggs famously hit headlines when Piers Morgan spat out their ‘vegan sausage roll’ on television.  It now has a cult following and many other of their staples have been ‘veganised’.  

More and more people are turning towards a vegan diet owing to concerns of the impact of livestock farming contributing to climate change.

Tottenham Hotspurs have also decided to increase the vegan options at their North London stadium, encouraging people to cycle or use public transport to help lower carbon emissions.
