Rising prices of tomatoes, quality issues and shortages of supply in India have caused fast food chains like Burger King and McDonald’s to remove tomatoes from their burgers.

Although both restaurants reassured their customers that they will add tomatoes as soon as possible, it won’t be available in the immediate future.

On it website under the frequently asked questions section, Burger King said that the current absence of tomatoes was “due to unpredictable conditions on the quality and supply of tomato crops”.

Neither of the restaurants made it clear whether the removal of tomatoes would apply to all of their stores or just some of them.

India, the world’s most populous nation, is under severe strain when it comes to its inflation forecast as it was recently raised.

CNN reports that last week, Subway announced its Indian outlets would charge 30 rupees extra for a cheese slice in most sandwiches.
