In order to meet the needs of Chinese customers, the McDonald's Company has begun providing non-fried foods in China, according to McDonald's Food Research and Development and Quality Management Center for the Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa Region.

Because the adverse effects of trans-fatty acid on health have been reported on in the media recently, Chinese consumers are paying close attention to edible oil and cream products. In addition, McDonald's indicated that the company will collect 4,000 food samples in the Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa region and send them to a Hong Kong laboratory for evaluation each year.

It is reported that the non-fried foods mainly consist of the tappasaki series. McDonald's has three food research and development and quality management centers globally, one of which is located in Hong Kong and provides service for the Asia-Pacific region, the Middle East and Africa. The other two are located in Munich, Germany and Oak Brook, U.S.A. The Oak Brook center is also the headquarters of McDonald's.
