As demand for vegan food sizzles across the country, mega fast food chain McDonald’s just cooked up a vegan burger option now on the menu at its Chicago headquarters.
Join us in asking the fast food chain to ‘ketchup’ to its fast food competitors by serving up a vegan burger nationwide!
Compassion Over Killing, along with a coalition of organizations, has long been grilling McDonald’s to make changes for birds suffering in its supply chain — from a powerful video ad seen by millions in Times Square, to eye-opening demonstrations, and more.
COK even sent a “singing chicken” to ruffle feathers at McDonald’s, bringing our message to its Chicago HQ: cruelty won’t fly.
Now, McDonald’s is serving up its vegan McAloo Tikki burger at that same Chicago store. VegNews reports the Indian-inspired patty is made with potatoes and peas and topped with onion and tomato, and you can order it vegan without the mayo.
A nationwide McAloo Tikki, and other vegan options, could be on their way to McDonald’s. Its Senior Vice President of Corporate Strategy Lucy Brady recently said “plant-based protein is something we’re keeping our eye on,” citing the popularity of plant-powered patties like the Impossible Burger.
On store shelves too, convenient and quick vegan meals are selling like hot cakes. As thousands join COK’s campaign for a vegan BOCA brand, the company recently debuted the first all-vegan turkey burger!
It’s time for McDonald’s to stop clowning around and offer a vegan burger, too — for a meal that makes all of its consumers as well as animals happy.
