McDonald’s will reportedly create its own McPlant meatless burgers

McDonald’s may be working on its own line of plant-based meat substitutes.


McDonald’s is planning to test a meat-free burger as part of McPlant menu options expected to debut next year, CNBC reported Monday. An executive for the fast food chain reportedly said that the McPlant was created “by McDonald’s and for McDonald’s,” but apparently declined to identify their supplier. 

A spokesperson for Beyond Meat on Monday said McDonald’s and the company “co-created the plant-based patty” that will be part of the McPlant platform. McDonald’s ran a test with Beyond Meat in Canadian branches last year.

Beyond Meat’s Beyond Burger and Impossible Foods’ Impossible Burger are the big names in plant-based patties that look and taste like the real thing. Burger King released a plant-based burger made by Impossible Foods last year, CNBC noted. McDonald’s didn’t respond to a request for comment.
