Finally…Vegetarians rejoice! McDonald’s Australia has launched the highly anticipated McVeggie Burger to all restaurants nationwide.
This new burger will be a permanent addition to the menu, making it the first time a vegetable-based burger has been available at all McDonald’s restaurants in Australia.
The burger will feature a crunchy patty packed with potatoes, peas, corn, carrot and onion. This will be topped with cheese, lettuce, herbs and spices, mayonnaise and Macca’s iconic pickles, all on a sesame seed bun.
“We know there’s an appetite for alternatives to traditional meat proteins and Australians are looking for more plant-based options in their diet,” said Jenni Dill, Chief Marketing Officer, McDonald’s Australia
The Burger Is NOT Vegetarian
However the McVeggie Burger is not strictly vegetarian.
“For those who are vegetarian, although there are no meat ingredients in the McVeggie Burger, due to its cooking procedure, it’s not strictly vegetarian,” added Ms Dill.
The McVeggie Burger will be available after 10:30am at all McDonald’s restaurants across Australia.
