McDonald's announced on Monday that they'll be introducing their own plant-based option with the 'McPlant' in 2021. They'll be using their own fake meat, forgoing a relationship with Beyond, or Impossible Foods.
Beyond & Impossible had long been trying to get into McDonald's & Beyond had a product (the P.L.T.) tested at McDonald's Canadian locations recently, but the biggest restaurant chain in the world is going with their own option, which they say is "made with a juicy, plant-based patty and served on a warm, sesame seed bun with all the classic toppings.”
The plant-based meat will be used in breakfast as well as chicken items as well.
Where the McPlant is initially available will be based on customer demand, according to CEO Chris Kempczinski.
McDonald's will also introduct a new crispy chicken sandwich in the new year.
