McDonald's has to ration french fries as supply shortage hits Japan

From Friday, McDonald’s Holdings Co. Japan will only offer french fries in small sizes; flooding at a Vancouver port and the pandemic have cut off supply for one of its key offerings.

The fast-food chain is trying to address the problem with alternative flights and it is cooperating with suppliers and importers, but it will only offer small-size french fries from Friday through December 30. Elimination of the medium and large-size offerings was necessary “to ensure that as many customers as possible will have continued access to our french fries.”

Set items at McDonald’s come with a medium size portion of french fries and customers have the option of increasing or decreasing the size. At 74 grams and 225 calories a serving, the small size is about half the portion of the medium size offering.
