McDonald's Japan forced to restrict fries
December 16 , 2014
Over 3,000 McDonald’s outlets in Japan are selling only small-sized portions of fries after major delays hit imports of the standard accompaniments to burgers.
Japan is Asia’s biggest market for American frozen potato products.
The delay has occurred due to a labor dispute involving 20,000 dockworkers and operators and shipping lines at US ports, among other factors.
McDonald’s imported some 1,000 tonnes of frozen fries via air as an emergency measure.
