SGS

McDonald's® Hong Kong understands that food safety is your most important priority. That's why we employ stringent procedures to source ingredients through our global network of suppliers. We have also appointed SGS, an independent, internationally recognized inspection, verification, testing and certification company, to test selected ingredients on a monthly basis.

In the past 3 years, over 730* McDonald's ingredients have undergone food testing conducted by SGS, results of which are all satisfactory. 



McDonald's Hong Kong employs stringent procedures to source ingredients through our global network of suppliers. In addition to passing our strict assessment procedures, all suppliers must have acquired certification from international food safety and quality systems like HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) and GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice). Our suppliers are also required to abide by McDonald's SQMS (Supplier Quality Management System).

We regularly examine our supplier's manufacturing processes and food safety standards, and we carry out additional detailed checks on our ingredient suppliers from China.

"Two levels of gatekeeping for your peace of mind" - McDonald's Hong Kong has introduced an additional step for sample-testing, and appointed SGS, an independent, internationally recognized inspection, verification, testing and certification company, to test selected ingredients from new and current suppliers every month. In the past 3 years, over 730* McDonald's ingredients have undergone food testing conducted by SGS, results of which are all satisfactory. Looking ahead, we will continue to test at least 20 selected ingredients every month as a step forward in food safety and quality assurance.

McDonald's will discuss and consult the internationally recognized independent accreditation company SGS. Based on the ingredients' characteristics and level of risk, appropriate tests will be conducted for heavy metals, preservatives and bacteria count etc., and to verify the safety levels of antibiotics in related food ingredients, to ensure they comply with food safety standards. All current and new ingredients will go through sample tests. These tests cover all types of ingredients and are carried out as advised by SGS. Samples are collected by their personnel and treated in accordance with their standard procedures. SGS tests meet international standards and local regulations.

The number of sample testing on selected ingredients are based on the following principles:

  • Product characteristics and seasonality
  • Level of risk
  • Recent food incidents' trend
  • Product popularity
  • New ingredients
