McDonald's is conducting a test sale of a plant-based hamburger called 'PLT burger' in Ontario, Canada in early 2020, and among them, the hamburger using Beyond Meat was especially popular.

A Beyond Meat spokeswoman emailed Reuters, 'Beyond Meat and McDonald's have jointly developed a plant-based patty that can be used on McPlant's platform.' However, McDonald's has not disclosed details of which manufacturer to use for McPlant's Patty.

McDonald's McPlant is rather a latecomer, as many fast-food chains offer plant-based products, but McDonald's CEO Chris Kempczinski said, 'Plant-based products are modern consumers. It's a trend, and what's important to McDonald's is not 'whether to sell plant-based burgers,' but 'when to sell.'

In addition to hamburgers, the McPlant line will offer chicken burgers, breakfast sandwiches and more, and McDonald's representative Joe Arriger said he will sell meat-free crispy chicken sandwiches in 2021.
