I’m sure many of you here are McDonald’s fans and have seen the burgers, wraps, and other things the chain offers. But would you like these things to be the same without the power that tomatoes give them? Not sure. Well, most McDonald’s stores in India are dropping tomato from their menu and sticking to the same size in stores. But the market has not made a connection with the rising price of tomatoes.
McDonald’s India Drops Tomato Off Their Menus

Many McDonald’s Indian outlets have decided to remove tomatoes from their menu. McDonald’s India-North and East, said that due to time constraints they could not produce tomatoes that pass the world class inspection test. So they are forced to serve people their favorite food without sour vegetables. A company spokesperson said they stopped using it simply because they couldn’t get the quality tomatoes they wanted. There are few roads in the Punjab-Chandigarh area where they are still in service so they can get it. The group is again trying to get the best and keep using it. And until then, people will miss their favorite tomatoes and burgers and wraps. Although McDonald’s did not talk about the surgery, netizens believe that the high price is actually the reason.
Due to the scarcity of tomatoes due to heavy rains, the price of this vegetable has increased in many places. Prices have reached over 150 per kilogram in many cities.
Online prices and various applications showed a price of around 160 per kilogram, making the situation worse for those who rely on online food services. The price of this vegetable rises in July-August as the transportation of this perishable commodity is difficult during monsoon, but this time the price is very high.
The reason for this sudden increase is said to be the sudden increase in temperature in March and April, which led to insect attacks on crop.
