As the years passed, we’ve experienced numerous changes in the world of questioning. In fact, some of the most pressing questions on our minds today begin with the word ‘what.’ For example, ‘what am I eating and is it good for me?’ There used to be a supposedly ‘simpler’ time when people didn’t ask too many questions, that time was also riddled with uncertainties and unexplained instances. We’ve advanced into an age where we no longer dismiss the back of a packet of chips but actually, take the time to read through it.
Perhaps this pressing need for answers has led us to scrutinize numerous fast-food chains, most notably McDonald’s. According to a report conducted by the fast food chain, McDonald’s claims to serve about seventy-five burgers per second throughout the world. To effectively answer all the questions one may have of their food, McDonald’s found a simple solution by taking people through a tour of their partnered OSI Group manufacturing factory in Günzburg, Germany. OSI Group is one of the largest food processing companies in the world originating in 1989 in the United States. Here in the OSI factory, nearly 90% of their beef is supplied to McDonald’s. Hence, if anyone has questions over where a McDonald’s hamburger or beef patty comes from, all they have to do is go to their factory.
Immediately on entering the factory, you’ll note the strict check and balance kept on maintaining cleanliness. To avoid any sort of contamination, workers are required to thoroughly wash their hands before entry and change into work-safe uncontaminated over-alls. Furthermore, workers are told not to bring any plastic materials such as pens or wear any jewelry while on their shift. In a day, the OSI Group factory is reported to produce a maximum of 30 million patties and distribute them to various outlets for the fast food chain. However, this capacity is rarely ever met, and their production rate is directly parallel to the demand order. To know more about the company click here.
From the minute the meat enters the factory, to being deboned, to being passed through various metal detectors and 40 other such detectors and 40 samples each day being checked thoroughly by being cooked and compared to the standard set by McDonald’s, OSI Group has lived up to consumer expectations in every respect. Essentially, OSI’s thorough work in eliminating any sort of complaint and addressing them in a timely and well-coordinated manner has led McDonald’s to hold its head high and proud.
