Good News People! McDonald's McPlant Burger Has Been Made A Permanent Menu Item

Looking for an excuse to take a trip to McDonald's? Introducing the fast food chain's first ever meat-free burger, the McPlant, which is now a permanent fixture on the menu.

The new burger launched in partnership with US brand, Beyond Meat back in autumn 2021, and was rolled out across 250 branches in the UK. And as a result of its successful rollout, McDonald's have decided to make it a full-time fixture on the menu.

Not a bad start to 2022, huh?

Made from plant-based ingredients including yellow peas, coconut, potato and beetroot juice, it even comes topped with vegan cheese and a vegan sandwich sauce! And it doesn't stop there, the patty itself is meant to recreate the texture and flavour of real beef. So, it's perfect for any vegans, vegetarians and flexitarians out there craving a burger.

McDonald's Spokesperson, Francesca DeBiase explained, "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.

Ethan Brown, from Beyond Meat, also described the deal with McDonald’s was "an exciting milestone."

He added, "We will combine the power of Beyond Meat’s relentless approach to innovation with the strength of McDonald’s global brand to introduce new plant-based menu items."

Feel like you the recognise the name? A version of the McPlant was actually sold in Austria in 2021. And it obviously did well, as it's jumping across the pond to the UK!
