(Corrects headline to say the company expanded trial to 52 restaurants, not 52 more outlets)
Jan 8 (Reuters) - McDonald’s Corp said on Wednesday it was expanding its pilot of plant-based meat burgers using Beyond Meat patty in 52 restaurants across Kitchener-Waterloo, Guelph and nearby areas in Canada.
The fast-casual restaurant chain had rolled out plant-based meat burgers in 28 Canadian restaurants in October.
Reuters reported on Tuesday that Beyond Meat’s rival Impossible Foods is no longer trying to win a deal to supply McDonald’s with plant-based burgers. (Reporting by Praveen Paramasivam in Bengaluru; Editing by Shinjini Ganguli)
