Revealed: How McDonalds makes its fries

01 March 2016

Fast food giant McDonalds has released a video showing how its French fries are made - and the scale is jawdropping.

The video stars former MythBusters co-host Grant Imahara, who tours a supplier's factory that makes and freezes the company's fries. 

The company has in recent years launched a transparency campaign called 'Good to Know' that aims to debunk some of the worst suspicions about the company's mass produced food. 

The scale of the operation at the Simplot factory is vast, modern and hygienic. It makes for compelling viewing.
