13 Oct McPlant goes on sale in over 250 restaurants today!
It’s finally here! Following a successful trial in Coventry; the new McPlant, McDonald’s UK&I first plant-based offering, will go on sale at over 250 restaurants across the UK from Wednesday 13th October before it rolls out nationwide in January 2022.
McDonald’s recently announced a trial for the McPlant at 10 restaurants in Coventry, with the new burger delivering the same great taste and experience you would expect from a McDonald’s burger, whilst enabling customers to choose a plant-based menu option.
The impressive McPlant features a Vegan Sesame Bun, Mustard, Ketchup, Vegan Sauce, Fresh Onion, Pickles, Lettuce, Tomato and Vegan Cheese. It is cooked separately from other McDonald’s burgers and sandwiches using dedicated utensils.
McDonald’s UK&I spent three years on research and development to bring a delicious plant-based offering to British and Irish customers, with every element of the McPlant designed with taste and quality top-of-mind. From the plant-based patty co-developed with Beyond Meat®, to innovative vegan cheese based on pea protein that tastes just like McDonald’s iconic cheese slices, and a new vegan sauce.
UK&I is the latest market to introduce the McPlant plant-based burger since McDonald’s officially unveiled its global McPlant platform in 2020. Based on feedback and expectations from local customers, the UK&I version of the McPlant is fully accredited as vegan by the Vegetarian Society to ensure it meets the highest vegan standards.
