In January, McDonald’s started rolling out their McPlant burger in Denmark and Sweden to gauge consumer interest. The tests will end on March 15 in Sweden and on April 12 in Denmark.

The McPlant comes with cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickles, onions, mayonnaise, mustard, and ketchup. According to Bloomberg, McDonald’s and Beyond Meat Inc. developed the pea and rice protein burger together.

Joachim Knudsen, CEO of McDonald’s Sweden, welcomed the arrival of the plant-based burger saying, “This is an exciting test of a really good burger, and we follow the test launch of McPlant closely and are very curious about the guests’ reactions to the burger.”

As of now, there don’t seem to be any plans for separate grills for plant-based and meat items, which could deter some potential buyers. This has been a persistent point of contention as more places release plant-based options.

This news follows Beyond Meat’s partnership with PepsiCo, which will allow the plant-based company to expand its product lines. Multiple other companies including, Carl’s Jr., Pizza Hut, TGI Fridays, and KFC, have introduced Beyond Meat products at their restaurants.
