Like the original McPlant, the Double McPlant is certified vegan and cooked separately from other McDonald’s burgers and sandwiches using specialized appliances.
Plant-based meat burger McPlant
When it first launched in the UK, 250 stores in the UK served McPlant plant-based meat burgers. But continued demand prompted the chain to sell the burger at all of its locations nationwide last January.
Michelle Graham-Clare, chief marketing officer for McDonald’s UK and Ireland, said in a statement last year:
“We are delighted that our McPlant is now officially ‘everywhere’ for more customers to taste and enjoy. Back in October we saw a remarkable response to the trial period. And, now McPlant is available across the UK and Ireland high street, retail park and service station.”
The McPlant Plant-Based Burger was developed to taste like a traditional McDonald’s burger, including the signature sesame bun and cheese (in a plant-based version).
McPlant The permanent retention and expansion of McPlant on the menu is part of McDonald’s commitment to achieving net zero emissions by 2050.
While the double plant-based burger is currently only available in the UK and Ireland, the original single-layer McPlant is still widely available across Europe – in Sweden, Denmark and Portugal, as well as in markets such as Australia.
