McDonald’s to suspend selling popular Big Mac in Venezuela

/ 06:39 PM July 25, 2016

Multinational fast-food chain McDonald’s will suspend selling the all-time favorite burger Big Mac due to a paucity of bread, according to reports.

“McDonald’s Venezuela is working to resolve this temporary situation,” Daniel Schleiniger, a spokesman for Arcos Dorados, the company that owns 200 McDonald’s outllets throughout Latin America and the Caribbean region, said in a press statement, according to Business Insider and TIME.

“Together with our supplier, we are evaluating the best options that will allow us to continue serving high-quality food to our customers. For the moment, we offer other menu options such as the Quarter Pounder, CBO, and McNífica, among others,” Schleiniger added.


Apparently, Big Mac is not the only popular item that went temporarily unavailable at the fast food chain’s menu. In January 2015, many Venezuelan chains ran out of potatoes, and replaced french fries with locally produced yuca (cassava) fries. Later that year, the sumptuous snack was back with an expensive price tag.

Venezuela has been burdened with food shortages due to its incessant political and economic crises. Thousands of Venezuelans are suffering from diseases and malnourishment; thousands of them had to cross to neighboring states such as Colombia just to eat and buy such basic necessities as food, medicines and toiletries.  Gianna Francesca Catolico
