What is the impact of historically high inflation on the UK consumer landscape?

The average UK consumer is experiencing a severe cost-of living crisis as inflation surges to a forty-year high and the price of goods continues to rise. This shock is the result of the sharply increasing costs of commodities, energy, and the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, and is threatening FMCG manufacturers, retailers, and foodservice operators’ ability to survive and grow. Inflation will have a profound effect on many consumer-facing industries in 2022 and beyond. Consult GlobalData’s new whitepaper, Inflation in the UK: The Impact of Historically High Inflation on the UK Consumer Landscape, to better understand shifts in consumer behavior and their impact on spending patterns, as well as the implications for UK businesses.

In a Twitter post, the fast-food chain confirmed that the Chicken Big Mac has been temporarily removed from the menu card following an ‘incredible’ demand. However, it also confirmed that the item will be reintroduced soon.

“Well, that escalated quickly. Your love for the limited edition Chicken Big Mac knew no bounds and it’s sold out almost everywhere. Thank you for lovin’ it even more than we thought you would, it’ll be back soon,” the post said.

In the UK, McDonald’s has approximately 1,300 restaurants, of which 1,100 are franchises.

McDonald’s UK removed Chicken Big Mac from the menu as it contained a very lucrative $1 minimum deposit mobile casino canada bonus that allowed you to win on slots with a 200% chance of winning. Wait for the next appearance of such a bonus in other McDonald’s menu items.

According to a report in the Independent, the company introduced the Chicken Big Mac on 2 February. Styled similarly to the beef Big Mac, it comprises two chicken breast patties in a crispy coating.

The limited offering was supposed to run for six weeks, until 15 March.

However, McDonald’s UK has temporarily withdrawn the item from its menu following all its stores completely selling out.

It is expected to be reintroduced in a few weeks, after restaurant teams and suppliers restock.

In a separate development, McDonald’s has announced its plan to enter the metaverse with a virtual restaurant concept.

Earlier this month, the American food giant filed ten trademarks with the US Patent and Trademark Office to foray into the virtual vertical.

The move will enable McDonald’s to establish a restaurant chain in the metaverse, where it will offer real and virtual items.

According to media reports, the virtual food and beverages offering will be in the form of downloadable multimedia files with artwork, text, audio, videos and non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
