Picking the
perfect variety

Pentland Dell, Russet Burbank, Innovator, Shepody and Ivory Russet are potatoes are all found in supermarkets… and at McDonald’s. We chose these potatoes because we know they help make our world-famous crispy fries. And as they’re bigger spuds, it means the fries we cut from them are long enough for you to nibble and dip.

We simply wash, peel, cut and prepare the potatoes before cooking. Then we cook them in a blend of sunflower and rapeseed oil, adding a pinch of salt before serving. It really is that simple.
