El Telégrafo – McDonadl affected by potato shortage

For McDonald’s, a shortage or even a decrease in the supply of potatoes is dangerous, because the menu that they offer includes potatoes as a priority.

In Taiwan, for example, McDonald’s hash browns fans will be left without this type of retail, as the fast-food giant announced the suspension of sales due to global supply chain instability.

The company made the announcement through billboards in some places on the island, warning that potato cakes were not available on the menu.

“There is a shortage of hash browns at McDonald’s restaurants and sales will be temporarily suspended once existing stocks are exhausted,” the company said in a statement on its website.

The Taiwan subsidiary indicated that this dish may be available again in mid-January, when stocks recover. In the meantime, he made it clear that the sale of potato chips would not be affected for the time being.

Disruptions in global supply chains due to the COVID-19 pandemic are affecting diverse products ranging from electronic components to foodstuffs as well as building materials.

McDonald’s announced that it will reduce the servings of French fries at its Japanese locations starting January 9 for one month.
