McDonald’s to launch plant-based meat substitutes from 2021 | Economic news


McDonald’s will launch its line of plant-based meat substitutes – the McPlant – in 2021.

The burger chain has partnered with Beyond Meat to create a patty, the Los Angeles-based company said.

“Beyond meat and McDonalds co-created the herbal pancake which will be available as part of their McPlant platform, ”a Beyond Meat spokesperson said in an email.

McDonald’s tested the PLT burger in September 2019 in select Canadian stores

Their shares fell 8% after McDonald’s announced its latest business – but gained 4% after the plant-based meat company announced its role in co-creating the patty.

McDonald’s – which previously reported above-market profit and revenue for the third quarter – declined to comment on the supplier it uses for its fake meat products.

He also did not provide additional details.

Beyond Meat was the favorite for a veggie contract as it had tested the “PLT” burger at 100 restaurants in Ontario, Canada.

“Herbal products are an ongoing consumer trend. It’s not a question of whether McDonald’s is going to launch into plant-based products, it’s a question of when, ”said McDonald’s general manager Chris Kempczinski.

Competition from McDonald’s – other brands such as Burger King, White Castle, and Dunkin ‘Brands Group Inc – also offer vegan alternatives.

Los Angeles-based company Beyond Meat says it has teamed up with McDonald’s to co-create the vegan galette for the new line.

This decision by McDonald’s is expected to put the plant-based meat movement at the forefront of mainstream American society.

The chain says that as part of its new line, it could offer burgers, chicken substitutes and breakfast sandwiches – which it plans to test in select stores from 2021.
