  • HOW IT'S PREPARED
    • 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.

      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 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.
