Apple suppliers behind McDonald's on healthier Happy Meals

Due to pressure from rising obesity rates, McDonalds has been modifying their popular, yet calorie-laden menu for healthier options. The convenient and beneficial option has been to swap away fries for apple slices in their Happy Meals. Due to the huge success of apples in lieu of fries, McDonalds will be adding apples slices to ALL of their Happy Meals!

Roughly 10-12% of Happy Meals are currently sold with apples instead of fries, which means larger revenue for McDonalds and apple farmers alike. Once McDonalds makes the switch to adding apples to all their Happy Meals, two of McDonald's regular apple suppliers, Tree Top and DOMEX SuperFresh Growers should see a bumper crop of money (and hopefully apples).
