LONDON, Ont. — Starting next week, McDonald’s will expand the global test of its P.L.T (Plant. Lettuce. Tomato) to 52 locations across Southwestern Ontario. As of January 14, the P.L.T. will be available in London, Kitchener-Waterloo, Guelph and surrounding areas.
The P.L.T. is made with a Beyond Meat plant-based patty and is McDonald’s first foray into the plant-based protein segment. The test began last September with the launch of the meatless burger in 28 locations in London, Ont. and surrounding area.
“The initial test of the P.L.T. allowed us to learn more about guest demand and how to integrate this new menu item into restaurant-kitchen operations, while delivering the P.L.T. to our guests with the level of quality and ‘craveability’ they know and love from McDonald’s,” says Jeff Anderson, chef at McDonald’s Canada. “As a test-and-learn company, the McDonald’s expansion of its P.L.T. into more restaurants in the Southwestern-Ontario region will help us learn more about our guests’ tastes while continuing to provide variety within our menu.”
The P.L.T. will be priced at $5.99 plus applicable taxes.
