McDonald’s has announced their new menu items for 2021 and they are definitely interesting!
Not only has the worldwide food chain announced their new crispy chicken sandwich, but they have also announced that they will be growing their food toward vegans, vegetarians, and those who lean that way.
A new plant-based “platform,” called McPlant, with tests of a vegan burger, is expected in some markets around the world next year.
“In the future, McPlant could extend across a line of plant-based products including burgers, chicken-substitutes, and breakfast sandwiches. And, we expect some markets will test the burger next year. We are excited about the opportunity because we believe we have a proven, delicious-tasting product. When customers are ready for it, we are ready for them.”
McDonald’s has published a short video preview of McPlant on its website, where it acknowledged customers looking for “exciting new tastes” and noted, “Last year, with those customers in mind, we tested our first plant-based burger in select restaurants in Canada. Based on what we learned and encouraging response, we’re excited to give you a sneak preview of the McPlant – a delicious plant-based burger crafted for McDonald’s, by McDonald’s, and with the kind of craveable McDonald’s flavor our customers love.”
