Fast Food Chain Wendy's Launches Plant-Based Burger
International fast food chain Wendy’s has added a plant-based burger to the menu in Canada.
The burger — called The Plantiful — features a pea-protein patty with dairy cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickle, and onion, served with ketchup and mayonnaise.
“Best Plant-Based Burger”
“Plant-based product offerings have become an expectation of Canadian consumers,” said Lisa Deletroz, senior director of marketing at Wendy’s Canada.
“We developed a flexitarian option the Wendy’s Way, using high quality, flavorful ingredients and this resulted in what we believe is the best plant-based burger available to Canadians.”

Plant-Based At Wendy’s
Wendy’s suggested last year that it might soon put meat-free meals on the menu.
“Clearly there is growth out there in plant-based proteins and we believe that it is a trend that will be here to stay,” said Todd Penegor, Wendy’s CEO.
“We’re taking a hard look at what the options would be for us at the restaurant.”
The fast food chain has warned vegans that the new plant-based burger is cooked alongside animal meat products.
