McDonald’s Veggie Dippers meal—including vegan nuggets served with chips and a soft drink—will launch in the UK on January 2, 2020.

The nuggets will be fried separately from products containing meat, a spokesman said, and served with McDonald’s UK chips, which are vegan-friendly.

The move comes as restaurants are capitalising on increasing demand from UK customers for vegetarian and vegan food options. McDonald’s said in the last 12 months it had seen an “80% uplift” in customers ordering vegetarian options.
