Today all beefsteaks from Miratorg are produced for McDonald's with addition of Black Angus marbled beef.
''We use only 100% natural meat in the minced meat production. There no spices or any other additives in our beefsteaks. Salt and spices are added directly during the cooking only in McDonald's restaurants. Chilled raw materials are transported from our enterprise in Bryansk to our facility in Kaliningrad", Denis Smirnov said, production director at Miratorg enterprise in Kaliningrad.
All the production at Miratorg enterprise in Kaliningrad is fully automated, including beefsteak production lines. The employees only watch the equipment which mixes the minced meat independently, molds it and packs the products for their further transportation.
The products from each batch are thoroughly tested right during the production in a special laboratory on the equipment which is the same as that installed in McDonald's restaurants.
''In our laboratory we monitor the quality of products from the raw materials to the finished beefsteak in accordance with the highest standards and requirements from our partners. Miratorg enterprise in Kaliningrad is audited several times a year including without prior notification from McDonald's in order to confirm the compliance with the high standards of McDonald's", Yuliya Sviridenko said, chief process engineer of Miratorg enterprise in Kaliningrad.
