5. Cultural homogenisation is the process by which local cultures are changed by foreign cultures to become more and more similar with aspects of foreign cultures. It can also lead to some foreign cultural influences becoming dominant, thus reducing the influence of local cultures.

5.1. An example of cultural homogenisation is seen in how Starbucks has widened its customer base from a single store in the USA over 40 years ago to over 21,000 stores across 65 countries.

For example, the popularity of global brands like Starbucks and Macdonald has affected food culture in a country due to homogenisation. However, with homogenisation, the food landscape can become dominated by foreign food establishments, eroding diversity in the food landscape as more locals prefer foreign food than local food.

7. However during the Mcdonald expansion many were displeased with it especially the Italians which they protested against Mcdonald plan to build the first fast food chain in Italy in 1986 they were carrying bowls of pasta in their end to protest the "Americanisation" of the Italian culture

12. Globalisation has contributed towards hybridisation in food around the world because of MNCs one example would be mcdonalds. There are now currently 37,855 McDonals restraunts around the world. Because of its popularity in its own country America it was also a loved fast food restraunt from all over the world allowing them to expand world-wide catering macdonals to the world

13. For example, in Singapore,Korean television drama, pop music, electronics, food, fashion and language are gaining popularity among the local population.
