McDonald’s is the latest fast-food company to offer plant-based meat alternatives with its McPlant lineup.
Plant-based meat alternatives have been growing in popularity as a healthy alternative to traditional meat. Burger King, Dunkin’, Carl’s Jr., Qdoba, Subway and White Castle are just a few of the chains offering plant-based alternatives.
McDonald’s is now joining that growing list of restaurants with its McPlant, based on Beyond Meat.
“Beyond Meat and McDonalds co-created the plant-based patty which will be available as part of their McPlant platform,” a Beyond Meat spokesperson said, according to CNN Business.
Initially, McPlant will be used for a burger, but the company may eventually expand to include plant-based breakfast and chicken alternatives. The company will be testing the burger in select markets beginning next year.
