Last year, McDonald’s restaurants in Poland sold 144 million portions of fries, says Patrycja Pazio from McDonald’s Poland on the occasion of the World French Fries Day on July 13. What’s more, the potatoes are used 100%, because biogas is produced from the peelings.
Deliveries to Polish restaurants have been carried out by Farm Frites Poland from Lębork since 1995, and special varieties of potatoes with long tubers are grown in Wielkopolska, Pomerania, Żuławy and Kujawy. Polish fries also go to restaurants in 10 other European countries.
Farm Frites Poland has been a supplier of fries to all McDonald’s restaurants in Poland since 1995. The company from Lębork, called the capital of fries, produces 26,000 tons of fries. Deliveries from Lębork also go to restaurants in Bulgaria, Serbia, Georgia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, as well as in Belarus, Lithuania, Latvia, Slovakia and Ukraine – a total of 11 European markets.
During all these years of cooperation, we have sold over 1.1 billion portions of French fries from Lębork – says Patrycja Pazio from the corporate relations department at McDonald’s Polska.
