McDonald's to launch plant-based meat range

It will offer plant-based burgers, chicken substitutes and breakfast sandwiches

McDonald's will introduce a range of plant-based meat alternatives called "McPlant" starting from next year.

It will offer plant-based burgers, chicken substitutes and breakfast sandwiches.

The fast food giant has already tested out a plant-based burger in Canada with the Beyond Meat plant-based brand.

"We are excited about the opportunity because we believe we have a proven, delicious-tasting product," said Ian Borden, who heads McDonald's international operations.

Other fast-food chains including Burger King, White Castle and Dunkin' Brands Group have already introduced plant-based burgers.

McDonald's still relies on its main products like the "Big Mac", "McNuggets" and French fries, which make up around 70 per cent of its sales in its key markets.

However, it is not yet clear who will supply McDonald’s with the meat alternative.

Beyond Meat insists it is still involved.

Barclays Bank forecasts that consumption of meat alternatives might be worth $140bn (£106bn, €119bn) by 2029.
