Fast-Food Chains That Don't Use 100% Organic Beef in Their Burgers

McDonald's burgers taste wonderful because the nation's largest fast-food company utilises 100% ground beef.


The chain's Quarter Pounders use fresh, never frozen ground beef. McD's other burgers use frozen beef.

Wendy's beef beats McDonald's. The business emphasises that its meat is fresh and never frozen, although it is not organic. Since 1969, Wendy's has served fresh beef.


Five Guys, like Wendy's, boasts on its website that it has coolers but no freezers.

And the meat you'll find in those coolers is an 80/20 combination of USDA ground beef, per Mashed. It's not organic, but it's not produced with trimmings, either.

Shake Shack's burgers are antibiotic-free, but they're not organic. The firm sells antibiotic-free, humanely reared beef.

Smashburger's burgers are made with 100% Certified Angus Beef, which is officially recognized like organic.


The chain's website says Certified Angus Beef "must pass 10 science-based requirements for excellence."

Mooyah serves 100% Certified Angus Beef burgers, like Smashburger. The meat is never frozen, like many of our franchises. You decide if the chain's burgers are better than most beef.


BurgerFi has high-quality ground beef. The chain sells A-Grade Angus Beef, but it's not organic. BurgerFi, a younger brand, has grown up in an age of customer awareness.
