McDonald's UK has announced the launch of their first fully vegan meal.
The fast-food chain has introduced Veggie Dippers as a meal or Happy Meal after teaming up with The Vegan Society.
McDonald's' new additions will be available on 2 January 2020, just in time for Veganuary.
The new Veggie Dippers are made with red pepper, rice, sundried tomato pesto and split peas and are surrounded by light and crispy breadcrumbs.
Customers will be able to order a fully vegan meal for the first time when the Veggie Dippers are teamed with a Vegan Society approved Fries and any of the soft drink options and sauces.
The Veggie Dippers will also be available as a fully vegan Happy Meal following the success of the first ever veggie Happy Meal earlier this year.

Head of Food Marketing at McDonald’s UK & Ireland, Thomas O’Neill, said: "In the last 12 months we’ve seen an 80% uplift in customers ordering vegetarian options at McDonald’s, so it is time for the brand famous for the dippable McNugget to launch a dippable option for our vegetarian, vegan and flexitarian customers.
