Vegan McDonald’s

This new product, if McDonald’s decides to go ahead, will mark the fast-food chain’s second collaboration with vegan food start-up Beyond Meat.

McDonald’s first teamed up with Beyond Meat in September 2019 to launch a veggie burger in Canada.

After trialing the burger called “P.L.T.” or “Plant Lettuce Tomato,” at 52 locations in January this year, the food giant took the burger off the menu by April with no updates on whether it planned to get it back at a later date.

Beyond Meat expansion deals

Meanwhile, US based Beyond Meat is aggressively expanding its supply channels in the global market.

It has signed a new deal in the U.K. with popular and well-established British grocery chain Sainsbury and 41 Gourmet Burger Kitchen restaurants to roll out its plant-based meat products in these outlets.

“The UK continues to be a crucial part of Beyond Meat’s long-term growth strategy in Europe,” Chief Growth Officer Chuck Muth said.

Stateside, the Beyond Burger products will now be available at over 2,400 Walmart outlets.
