McDonald’s has announced a number of changes to how they cook and serve their burgers across Canada.
The changes, touted in a recent news release from the company, include a switch to 100 per cent Canadian beef patties, to be cooked in smaller batches for “hotter and juicier beef.” Others include storage changes for “fresher and crisper produce,” onions added directly on the patties on the grill for flavour, more Mac Sauce on Big Macs, and new bun recipes for warmer buns.
McDonald’s Canada has confirmed the franchise in North Battleford is among those switching over, as the changes impact all McDonald’s franchises in Canada. The company states the move “not only marks the next evolution of the McDonald's beef journey, but it also builds on the organization’s strong foundation around menu transparency, dedication to using sustainably sourced Canadian beef and commitment to serving great tasting burgers made with quality ingredients.”
The company also pointed out that McDonald’s beef patties are 100 per cent pure Canadian beef made from cattle raised by ranchers primarily located in Alberta and Saskatchewan. The company also stated that with the exception of a pinch of salt and pepper, their beef is produced without any artificial preservatives, fillers, colours or flavours.
