Menus of fast food places are always changing and updating. 

McDonald's have added something new to their menu - catering to vegan customers. They've released a dairy and meat-free burger.

A Maccas restaurant in Finland is currently trialing the burger until the end of November, and if it's successful enough it'll be pushed in more locations, Veggie Athletic reports.

Marketing Director of McDonald's in Finland, Christoffer Rönnblad has praised the response to the new dish, saying he's heard mostly positive things about it.

"We are following the reaction with interest and we are happy to receive feedback," he said. "That's the purpose of the trial.

"The vegan hamburger required extensive in-house product development. The [vegan] hamburger steak is soy based. 

"We were really passionate about finding a steak that tastes really good."

He claims that however this individual meal performs the franchise will still look to develop its meat-free offerings.

The soy patty is served with fries. Rönnblad says of the fries: "Yes, they are made here in Finland from potatoes and baked in vegetable oil. The fries are completely vegan."
