McDonalds CEO Hints That More Vegan Options Could Be On The Menu Soon

by | May 7, 2020

McDonald’s CEO Chris Kempczinski has suggested that more vegan options could soon be available at the global fast-food chain.

During a recent interview with CNBC, Kempczinski discussed adding additional plant-based items to the menu at worldwide locations.

“It’s Just A Question Of When”

“I think for us the question is really about when and our system operates best at scale” said Kempczinski.

“When we bring plant-based onto the menu, we need to be confident that there is a sufficient level of demand that really will allow it to stick on the menu and so that’s going to be a country-by-country decision.”

“I do expect that we will have plant-based on the menu, it’s just a question of when.”

The fast-food giant currently has a select few plant-based options available in the UK, such as The Vegetable Deluxe burger, and The Spicy Veggie One wrap. A vegan-friendly Happy Meal is also available, and the Apple Pie dessert is free from animal products.

In Canada, McDonalds began trialling the P.L.T Burger as a plant-based option last year.

The Plant, Lettuce, and Tomato Burger (P.L.T) is made using a Beyond Burger patty, topped with pickles, onions, ketchup, mustard, mayo, and cheese. The burger can be made vegan by ordering without the mayo and cheese.
