Amritsar, Sep 6 (THAINDIAN NEWS) The MacDonald’s company made an announcement of Tuesday that, it would be opening a few vegetarian restaurants in India aiming to have a come back in the fast foods although the market is not as promising in this area.

The fast food sector in India has not been promising for nearly two decades that have been shown by progresses as well as drawbacks.

The company also made an announcement that it would open more outlets near the Golden Temple as well as in the Hindu Shrine in Jammu and Kashmir. This company has nearly 270 restaurants in India alone and more than 33,000 stores in the world.

The problem that has hit this company is the issue of what is the product that bears its brand, the beef hamburgers. This company unfortunately does not sell products made from beef in India where the larger part of the population is composed of Indians.

However, this company records about 3% of the total beef consumption in the United States and this is according to the Meat Trade News daily updates. About ten years ago this company was almost chased out of the United States for claims that beef flavor was put on fat when making French fries.
