Why are McDonald’s substituting sunflower oil in some recipes?

May 23, 2022

The conflict in Ukraine has affected supplies of sunflower oil. To ensure we can continue to offer our full menu, we have been working closely with our suppliers to substitute sunflower oil.


The following products may have been substituted with rapeseed oil:

  • Rich Tomato Dip (served with Cheesy Garlic Bites)
  • Sweet Chilli Dip


The labels of these products are in the process of being updated to reflect these changes.

Please check this section for the most up to date position on our menu items which are impacted.
