McDonald’s is going plant-based?
Well, not entirely, not yet, at least but they are making their first tentative steps in that direction.
Their CEO acknowledges that plant-based is what people want and they are going to introduce a brand-new burger to make that happen.
The McPlant will be a truly vegan offering that is exclusively used by McDonald’s.
Of course, for every silver lining there’s a cloud.
This announcement by McDonald’s has hurt one of the first entrants to the plant-based meat market, Beyond Meat, who saw their share price take a hit when the burger was announced.
Not everyone’s happy about it, either.
Piers Morgan who famously ranted about vegan sausage rolls is no more impressed about the McPlant burger calling it “total nonsense”.
He also claimed that vegans are appropriating the language of food, something that his co-host Susanna Reid laughed away.
