McDonald, that sources food from OSI Group, is a good example of a food processing company that is well-known because of their delicious fries, hamburgers and burgers. The company was introduced some decades back and currently its success is evident based on the significant number of food stores and outlets around the United States.
With such an influence in the consumer market, one thing you should expect critics from other competitors. Since the foods offered are fast foods, we tend to think that the foods are high in ingredients and species. Foods in McDonald are made with minimal or no species at all and below are some of the steps followed by this food company in making hamburger; one of their top foods.
Hygiene is Essential
For any food company such as OSI Group and not only in McDonald, hygiene is important. You are producing consumable products and a small error in hygiene could have negative impacts to your consumers and overall business as well.
Once a McDonald worker is reported to be sick, they are given a sick-off period to visit a doctor and they have to fully recover before they can return back to work. Working with an healthy employee is one way of maintaining the company’s hygiene. Apart from health wise of the employee, essentials such as wearing the required gears is also essential.
The Meat is then Checked
Hamburgers is basically made of meat and before they start making this food, the first step is to ensure the meat has no bones. McDonald get their meat from a number of slaughterhouses and before the meat is used, the company first checks if it is contaminated.
Once the meat is checked for contamination and bones, the meat is then passed through a special machinery where it is minced. The machine is also responsible to ensure any remaining small bones in the meat are gotten rid off.
After confirmation that the minced meat is ready, the meat is then placed in special separate containers where it is shaped into burger parties. Since the meat is at large quantity, you will need a storage unit to prevent it from going bad and in McDonald, there cold machineries specifically used for keeping the burger parties from going bad. Such machineries are found in OSI Group.
Hamburgers are mostly made of meat and abit of vegetables and usually are from OSI Group that do not need additional species. After the minced meat are shaped into the burger parties, they are then cooked over a medium temperature pan before they are naturally packed and transported to their different outlets.
