: Out of date product is sold, as is food that has been in holding
: cabinets for hours after its initial cooking. You are taught to
: cheat the customer by adding loads of ice to drinks and squeezing
: cartons when adding fries. Meat that has thawed is refrozen, and the
: temperatures on cooking equipment is regularly set wrong. During
: busy spells any pretence to food hygiene is dropped.

Our procedures are the safest, most efficient and most hygenic way to get the job done, and we follow them without exception.
