Guess What’s Back On The Menu At McDonald’s In Japan

BY JST NEWS McDonald's in Japan

If you were traveling in Japan during the last several weeks, you’ve probably noticed that medium and large french fries weren’t on local McDonald’s menus while you could order extra chicken nuggets for merely 100 yen.

That’s because the world’s largest chain of hamburger fast food restaurants was experiencing a shortage of french fries exported to Japan due to a labor dispute at ports on the US west coast which caused delayed export of fries.

McDonald’s was forced to limit orders of french fries to small portions at more than 3,000 locations in Japan. But starting on January 5, medium and large-sized fries will be making a comback.

An emergency airlift of French fries to Japan was executed by McDonald’s to end the shortage. In a statement, the company said:

We will continue to monitor the situation carefully to do our best to ensure stable supply of potato products.

In early December, McDonald’s announced that it had airlifted more than 1,000 tons of potatoes and shipped 1,600 tons by sea from the US east coast knowing that it wouldn’t be enough for the regular supply.

Worry no more, fries lovers will be happy to indulge in 2015!
