McDonald’s will join a growing list of fast-food restaurants selling vegan dishes in the UK.
McDVOICE said its vegetarian food, including vegan nuggets served with chips and sodas, will launch in the UK on January 2.
Follow KFC and Greggs to present vegan options.
An animal rights activist said that a vegan meal is the definition of a happy meal.
However, he said he would continue to support McDonald’s to bring its McVegan burger, available in Finland and Sweden, to the United Kingdom.
What does McDonald’s offer?
The new McDVOICE bowls are made from rice, bell peppers, tomato pesto, and fried peas on breadcrumbs.
According to a spokesperson, the product is fried separately from meat products and served with vegan McDonald’s potato chips in the UK. This step occurs when restaurants benefit from British customers’ growing demand for vegetarian and vegan options.
McDonald’s said in the past 12 months that customers who ordered vegetarian options saw an increase of “80%.”
The company is a new fast-food chain offering vegan products. Greggs released a vegan sausage roll earlier this year, which he attributed to sales growth.
Other chains with vegan options are Frankie & Benny, Gourmet Burger Kitchen, Nando, Papa John, and Pizza Hut.
Inviting the customers
Humane Society International UK, which works for animal welfare, said the McDonald’s movement would help integrate veganism.
“If major global brands like McDVOICE start serving vegan food, it could have a big impact on all meat,” said BBC Director Claire Bass.
Elisa Allen’s director said: A vegan meal, which should not be killed, is the definition of a happy meal.
We will continue to invite consumers to vote with their wallets and choose vegans to save pigs, cows, and chickens from a short and miserable life and violent death.
A 2018 Mintel survey found that people eat less meat for a variety of reasons, including health benefits, weight loss, animal welfare, and environmental issues.
