That’s right, we said, “VEGETARIAN”
McDonald’s already keeps beef and pork products off the menu in India where a majority of the population are Hindus and Muslims. McDonald’s sells Chicken McNuggets and fish burgers in its regular Indian outlets although its traditional beef burgers aren’t available. The cow is sacred to religious Hindus, who don’t eat beef.
The attempt to draw religious Indians shows how the Golden Arches is boosting sales by catering to local tastes outside its home market. The vegetarian restaurants will include offerings such as the McAloo Tikki burger, a sandwich with a mashed-potato patty and the Pizza McPuff, a vegetable and cheese pastry,
India, the world’s second most populous nation, is important for McDonald’s as it increases sales overseas. The country’s large population, growing urbanization and increasing number of people joining the workforce may help the fast-food industry expand from 47 billion rupees ($840 million) in 2010 to to 146 billion rupees in 2014, according to estimates by researcher RNCOS E-Services Pvt.
