The UK unit of US fastfood giant McDonald’s is reportedly planning to introduce a Quorn burger, adding to its vegetarian menu offering.

The chain has signed a deal with Marlow Foods, which makes Quorn, to supply McDonald’s restaurants with Quorn burgers, reported Marketing.

A McDonald’s spokeswoman said the company has been speaking to a variety of companies about developing another vegetarian burger.

Marketing activity for the new burger is expected to focus on the low-fat, meat-free attributes of Quorn, as McDonald’s attempts to create a healthier image for itself.
