The fast food chain is planning to introduce them into selected markets from 2021.
Fast food chain McDonald’s is launching a line of plant-based meat alternatives known as ‘McPlant’ in 2021 to cater to those who do not eat meat.
Created in collaboration with Beyond Meats, a company that specialises in vegan meat substitutes, this is likely to be music to the ears of vegans across the world.
Already, test runs have been done in Canada since last year and McDonald’s are ready to roll out the new product to selected markets.
Other items in the McPlant line will include chicken substitutes and breakfast sandwiches.
“Plant-based products are an ongoing consumer trend. It’s not a matter of if McDonald’s will get into plant-based, it’s a matter of when,” said McDonald’s Chief Executive Officer Chris Kempczinski.
McDonald’s is however, relatively late to the meatless game, with Burger King having launched the Impossible Whopper burger in 2019.
