Is The Vegan Beyond Burger Coming To McDonalds For Good?

by | December 11, 2019

Fast food giant McDonalds is currently testing the Beyond Burger patty in its new Plant Lettuce Tomato (P.L.T.) burger.

Testing of the Beyond Meat creation is taking place at 28 locations in Ontario, Canada. Reports show that some of these locations have sold upwards of 100 P.L.T. burgers a day, and there is now speculation that the burger could be headed to the US.

Analysts have reported that if the fast food chain were to add the P.L.T. as a permanent fixture on the menu in the US, then they could sell over 250 million of the plant-based burgers each year.

“This test allows us to learn more about real-world implications of serving the P.L.T.,” said Ann Wahlgren, McDonald’s Vice President of Global Menu Strategy, “including customer demand and impact on restaurant operations”.
