This month, the McDonald's P.L.T. (Plant. Lettuce. Tomato.) is being introduced with a 12-week test, enhancing the chain's fast food menu with an all-new plant-based burger. The burger features a meatless Beyond Meat patty that was made exclusively for McDonald's so that customers will have a familiar experience. The plant-based P.L.T. is served on a sesame seed bun and contains no artificial colors, artificial flavors or artificial preservatives.
For a limited time, the McDonald's P.L.T. is being introduced to 28 restaurants in Southwestern Ontario so that feedback can be collected from customers on how to better serve its global market.
While McDonald's does have vegetarian-friendly options, other plant-based burgers have only been introduced to select markets, making the P.L.T. an option that many will likely be eager to try.
