Wendy’s is apparently testing a new plant-based burger called Plantiful at select locations in Canada.
The new Plantiful Burger features a 100 percent vegan patty made with pea protein, and comes topped with melted cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, sliced onions, pickles, ketchup, and mayo.
For those wondering, Wendy’s Plantiful is not entirely vegan as it contains dairy-based cheese and mayonnaise.
The chain has not publicly announced the launch of its new plant-based burger yet and it hasn’t been added to their website either.
However, Wendy’s has been spotted testing the new Plantiful Burger in at least a few locations in Toronto. Images of the new plant-based menu item appeared on a sign that said “Where’s the beef? Not here.”
Wendy’s CEO Todd Penegor said during the company’s 2019 second-quarter earnings call back in August that they were considering adding plant-based options to their menu.
“Clearly there is growth out there in plant-based proteins and we believe that it is a trend that will be here to stay.”
