A former McDonald’s CEO is flipping vegan burgers these days.

Don Thompson is bringing his 25 years of experience from the fast food chain to the six-year-old vegan food company, Beyond Meat.

Thompson left McDonald’s after months of faltering sales. In a November 5 statement announcing his new job, he said customers today want more variety in their food choices and are adding more plant proteins, like his new company’s non-GMO, protein patties made out of peas.

“The team at Beyond Meat have proved that you can actually have great taste and high quality with plant-based proteins, even in a burger,” he added.

Beyond Meat’s vegan and vegetarian products are available in 7,500 stores across the U.S. Republish
