MCDONALD's has rolled out its first-ever plant-based burger across the UK and Ireland after a successful trial. 

The product first launched in some Coventry and Nuneaton McDonald's restaurants on September 29 before the burger was made available in 250 UK stores on October 13.

No Somerset stores stocked the McPlant during the product's trial phase, meaning the plant-based burger is now available to buy in the county for the first time. 

The popular McPlant, which took over three years to develop, features a patty made by McDonald's in partnership with Beyond Meat. 

The burger contains vegan sandwich sauce, ketchup, mustard, onion, pickles, lettuce, tomato, and a vegan cheese slice in a sesame seed bun. 

Michelle Graham-Clare, chief marketing officer at McDonald’s UK and Ireland, said: "We’re so pleased that our McPlant is now officially ‘everywhere’ and available for more of our customers to taste and enjoy.

"We saw a remarkable response to the trial period back in October and now McPlant is on the high-street, in retail parks and service stations all over the UK and Ireland so all of our customers will be able to try it.

"We’re proud to once again be offering our customers more great-tasting options from McDonald’s.

"It’s our same iconic taste – but plant-based."

The most common price for a McPlant is £3.49 for the burger and £4.89 for a medium extra value meal. 

McDonald's has stores across Somerset, including Taunton, Wellington, Bridgwater, Minehead, and Street.
