The McDonalds Burgers processing methods
In the past, there have been apprehensions about the usage of preservatives by companies such as McDonald’s on their best quality food to expand the lifespan of their products. One man experimented in Germany to find out how long the food could go without rotting; it is said that McDonald famous burger could stay for over ten years without rotting completely. Whether it is the preservatives or the drying of food by the company that keeps the burgers staying fresh still remains to be a subject of concern.
A recent visit to the OSI Group McDonalds factory in Germany revealed the whole process of manufacturing the burgers until they are sold. For instance, the factory insists that they source their beef from farms that organically rear their livestock. The livestock is slaughtered in the OSI Group McDonalds slaughterhouses that maintain cleanliness as one of their prospective business objectives. The meat is cut into huge junks with extra care not to allow bones into their prominent food factory.
The McDonalds Burgers are produced at stringent hygienic conditions.
When one enters the factory, they cover their heads, and no plastic is allowed even for journalists they use metallic pens which can be easily detected by the machines if they fall into the food processing machines accidentally. Workers who fall sick are given sick-leave until they are fully recovered, and the cause of their sickness investigated thoroughly. The meat is cooled in cooling tanks that do not allow for the survival of bacteria and other microbes.
The meat is cut into small sizes and packed by machines that measure the meat accordingly in very hygienic conditions after they have been dried to low moisture levels and exported to their final destinations. The OSI Group McDonalds meat is sourced from different farms in different countries; they, therefore, have different tastes as the feeds used in these countries differ from one to another. The preference for the amount of salt differs from one country to another. Therefore, the burgers will have different tastes. Recently OSI Group McDonalds one of the partners of McDonald added Baho Food to broaden their presence in the European market. The partnership has seen growth in a successful business as Baho Foods has five subsidiaries equipped with processing plants in Germany. McDonald aims at growing their in Europe and the rest of the world. Click here.
