McDonald’s has always kept the sensibilities right for the market. All McDonald’s restaurants have separate vegetarian and non-vegetarian kitchens. Vegetarian products are kept separate throughout the various stages of procurement, cooking and serving. McDonald’s does not serve beef and pork products in India. Mayonnaise and soft serve at all restaurants in India are also 100% vegetarian.
Since its launch in India, McDonald’s has been reinventing itself to cater to the ever-evolving consumers. Be it enhancing the in-store experience by offering world-class service to our customers or developing an indigenous menu completely unique to India, the brand has constantly revamped itself to remain amongst the most loved brands in India and across the world.
