McDonald’s Canada has released a new video that shows the journey a potato makes from the farm to the restaurant. In a continuation of its transparency series, the fast food chain reveals how it makes its famous french fries.

The potatoes are mainly harvested from farms in New Brunswick, Alberta, and Manitoba. They are sorted, washed, peeled, and cut into the standard strips.
