  • HOW IT'S PREPARED
    • Meat Products

      Separate grills are used to cook the beef and chicken patties used in all our burgers and the Foldover. The grills have sensors that determine the cooking time for products. Products are grilled from frozen to maintain the highest quality standards. McDonald’s uses only 100% beef, and 100% chicken in all our beef and chicken products.

      Food Assembly

      Each meal at McDonald’s South Africa is prepared as soon as the order is placed by the customer. As the order appears on the screen, the crew person begins preparing the order by toasting the bun, adding fresh ingredients (lettuce, onions, pickles etc.), condiments and freshly prepared beef, chicken, fish or vegetarian patty.

      Packaging

      The order is finally packaged in 100% recyclable packaging by the crew, and served fresh to our customer.

      Maintaining Cleanliness

      Hygiene is of the highest priority within the restaurant. At the back of the restaurant, utensils, trays and other cooking equipment are washed in hot water, rinsed using a spray nozzle and then sanitised before being air-dried. A wash area is within close proximity to the different stations in the kitchen. A kitchen timer goes off every 30 minutes and every hour to remind crew to sanitise and wash respectively. Crew have easy access to the wash area to sanitise every 30 minutes and an hourly hand wash routine. This aligns with McDonald’s global standards, which ensure the highest food, hygiene and employee safety standards. Either blue or clear gloves are used for different products to prevent cross contamination, and gloves are discarded every time crew sanitises/washes hands.

      Buns

      We have a variety of buns for our different products.
      Each bag of buns has an expiry and production date printed on the packaging. At McDonald’s we use the ‘first in, first out’ principle, this helps us keep track of which products to use first.

      Drinks

      The drinks are poured at the front counter but are mixed between the multiplex and the drink system. Every drink arrives ice cold. 2mm of froth.

      Fries

      All McDonald’s fries are cooked from frozen at 168° for a specific cooking time. The fries are kept in a portion controlled release container that ensures the right amount of fries is cooked at a time. The frying stations filter themselves to remove remaining fries from the station and keep it clean. In doing this, every batch of fries is cooked perfectly every time.
      Our fries also have specific golden standards that they have to adhere to which ensures the warm, crisp, golden and delicious fries are always just how you like them.

  • QUALITY MATTERS
    • Our Beef

      McDonald’s serves a very high number of customers every day. As a result, we are able to buy in bulk and negotiate good prices. We pass this benefit along to our customers, ensuring real value to you.

      Our beef patties are made of 100% ground beef and nothing else - no fillers, no binders, no preservatives and no additives.

      We season our patties with salt and pepper and cook them on a double-sided 'clamshell' grill. No extra fat is added.

      Our Buns

      We have a variety of buns for the different products that we sell, for example Big Mac buns, hamburger buns etc. Each bag has expiry dates and production dates printed on the packaging. At McDonald’s we use the first in, first out principle, this helps us keep track of which products to use first.

      Our Fresh Produce

      We ensure our customers receive fresh, safe and great tasting fresh produce. Our produce is delivered to our restaurants via refrigerated trucks, so you get the best crisp, wholesome seasonal greens and vegetables available. Our “use thru” dates guarantee that only fresh products are sold.

      Our Potatoes

      All natural, farm fresh potatoes are used to make our World Famous Fries. We only use potatoes that allow us to get the perfect size, taste and texture for a McDonald's French fry — slightly crisp with a tender bite on the outside, fluffy like a "baked potato" on the inside.

      The potatoes are cut, lightly par-fried and frozen before being distributed to our restaurants. Just prior to serving, the fries are cooked in our special palmolein oil, so that you get them crispy, hot and fresh.

      Fries are kept for a maximum of seven minutes after cooking. This guarantees that every fry you order from McDonald's is freshly prepared.
