A university academic who got the opportunity to see where the various components of a Big Mac come from has praised the McDonald’s supply chain.

 Alan Macdonald, who teaches supply chain management at the City of Glasgow College, said that the experience was ‘a real eye-opener’. He said: “We got to taste the pure burger in the lab. We got to taste the rolls off the bun line. I got to eat lettuce in the field. The message we got was the suppliers are working to high-end specifications.” As part of the fast food chain’s ‘quality scouts’ initiative, 15 people had the opportunity to access all areas and see where the famous burger comes from. They visited a Chichester farm growing lettuces, a Banbury bakery producing buns, an abattoir in Bedfordshire, and a beef processing plant in Lincolnshire. After speaking to the staff and observing the processes, Macdonald said he was impressed with McDonald’s ‘mature’ and responsive supply chain. Business leaders gathered in London to discuss the issues facing global supply chains at the Supply Fest 2013 summit, and you can watch the speakers’ presentations here.
