Definitely a smart move on Mcdonald's part as India has the biggest vegetarian consumers and a market. Wonder if it will make it to the US??? (For those vegans).

The fast-food giant reportedly plans to open its first vegetarian-only restaurant next year in India.

The Oak Brook, Ill.-based company has been known to tailor its menus to suit local demographics. In India, for example, it already uses chicken instead of beef for its Maharaja Mac sandwich. But this will be the first McDonald's without meat on the menu.

I am wondering if Monsanto has a hand in this? It seems India is fighting a losing battle against Monsanto.


In a notable victory for India, a country plagued with controversies surrounding the widespread genetically modified crops found across the nation, the government announced that beginning in January 2013 all food products containing genetically modified ingredients must be labeled if they’re going to be sold in the country.

What better way to poison the people of India by using a huge corporation like McDonalds to introduce a so called "better option"?

It certainly isn't to benefit the people of India! It is most likely a back door plan to sneek GMO's into the food supply!

India certainly got a market for it, most of the population follows Hinduism and collectively decided not to eat meat. Now maybe USA does not have a market for it but still has a abundant number of vegetarians, it could work but only in certain environments i guess.

Figure shows the annual meat consumption per capita in kg/person

Figure shows the annual fruit/vegetable consumption per State

Great. Veggie burgers soaked in pork fat and loaded with MSG that has 13,000 calories. That definitely sounds like a great way to eat healthy.

If enough Americans change their eating habits they might.

I always thought that people smart enough to be vegetarians were also smart enough not to eat at McDonald's. I'm not knocking meat-eaters..I eat limited amounts of meat myself. I still think vegetarians would avoid McDonald's no matter what they have on the menu.

I do eat a Big Mac very occasionally! I admit, I would be curious to try a vegetarian menu. But I don't see this sticking in the western world.

And their fries are way too salty for human consumption!

Well. Monsanto's products were being rejected by farmers. But it could also be a venue to lure the farmers into making more money if a corporation like Mcdonalds starts purchasing the cash crops in bulk thus promoting the GM seeds.

Precisely. Give people what they want and are accustomed to. Good business strategy.

Well it all depends since many of the ingredients in specific regions are purchased from that region and custom tailored to the particular market segment. Mcdonalds China and Japan are very different then Mcdonalds India or US. Especially since many cultures are picky, particular and disciplined about their food. Surely Mcdonalds would not jeopardise their market presence by pushing their line of products. They have to modify according to the market.

I haven't been to McD's in a few years but I recall they had 3 pretty good salads with chicken.That started their supposed healthy eating campaign.
