Fast food chains have been adding meatless and plant-based options to keep up with demand. White Castle offers Impossible Sliders and recently decided to add vegan cheese. Burger King sells a meatless Impossible Whopper. Starbucks, Tim Horton’s, even McDonald’s and Pizza Hut (in other countries) are also adding plant-based options. It was only a matter of time before popular fast food chain, Wendy’s decided to do the same.
Senior Director of Marketing of Wendy’s Canada, Lisa Deletroz says: “Plant-based product offerings have become an expectation of Canadian consumers. We developed a flexitarian option the Wendy’s Way — using high quality, flavourful ingredients — and this resulted in what we believe is the best plant-based burger available to Canadians.”

The Plantiful patty is a pea-based protein. The burger comes with lettuce, onions, pickles, tomato, mayonnaise, ketchup and a slice of cheese on a premium bun. However, the press release explicitly states that since it’s made to order, customers can exclude or include ingredients, which means cheese and mayo can be left out while ordering.
The Plantiful is now available at Wendy’s restaurants in Canada.
