McDonald’s is already curtailing the demand for their French Fries by only offering Medium McValue Meals for now.
With these new meal options that don’t include French Fries, they may be able to extend the availability of French Fries until supply is back.
According to a statement, the French Fries supply issue is due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic resulting in ocean freight dependability.
