McDonald's that makes it the ultimate in fast food. Of course, since the golden arches are one of the first things one thinks of when it comes to fast food, McDonald's has also received a lot of negativity in recent years regarding their food and ingredients.
A few weeks ago I was invited to attend an event where we could see first hand where McDonald's received all of their produce and the process it goes through in order to get it to your fast food tray. We also had an opportunity to attend a Q&A session with other McDonald's suppliers about what they are doing to incorporate healthier options for McDonald's restaurants nationwide. It was set to be a jam-packed and informative day, concluding with a delicious gourmet meal at the end! I was intrigued to find out more since I've noticed in the past few years McDonald's has made some changes in their meal options in order to bring healthier meal options to the public, so I wanted to see firsthand what goes into this so I could share with you!
