McDonald's stopped producing the Kiwiburger due to lack of profit (it was expensive to produce). The cost was because of the ingredients included in the burger. The burger had many ingredients that were not a part of any other product (beetroot for example), and the egg that went into the burger had to be cooked on a special grill which impeded operations (because of the temperature and timing).


Due to popular demand, the Kiwiburger was re-introduced to the McDonald's New Zealand menu in May 2007.
