The Lord of the Fries
The Lord of the Fries provides a fast serving, meat free experience, that titillates the taste buds and burnishes the belly.
"it's Kosher!" has investigated and guided the suppliers, processors and processes, and the systems employed to operate the franchises, of Lord of the Fries. Unimpeachable, Full Time, Kosher security is the standard for all products available at the Lord of the Fries, including Buns, Burgers, Chips, Sauces, Nuggets and biscuits.
Some sauces are dairy. We have ensured that all sauces are entirely isolated from one another and the non-dairy sauces are entirely non-dairy, Pareve.
We ensure that the bread is Pat Yisrael and the cheese is Gevinat Yisrael.
We have designed and implemented rigorous standards for washing, inspecting and checking vegetables. These are documented in precise steps and universally maintained and monitored in all shops. This ensures that they fully comply with Halachah. Surfactants are used in all washes.
We maintain vigilant oversight on all these, ensuring that Kosher consumers are assured of great food of unquestionable Kashrut.
All shops have a TeUdah, a letter of Kosher compliance.
refers to the special decree of our Sages, requiring that cheese have Jewish participation in its manufacture.
refers to the special decree of our Sages, that bread be baked with Jewish participation.
The LOTF is centrally run like many, perhaps even all franchises.
For maintaining Kashrus this is ideal. We have absolute unfettered access to the stores and the suppliers' production facilities where all the components of the LOTF menu are produced. In this facility all foods and ingredients are Kosher.
It also means we have absolute control over every single component in all the shops because everything is monitored and is interlinked. For so many burgers there must be so many rolls and for so many chips there must be so many potatoes. For so many servings of particular sauces there must be so many litres of that sauce. This is the best Full Time Kosher Supervision.
It is impossible to modify any ingredient or component without leaving tracks of imbalances that will certainly be exposed at the regular business and Kosher audits.
A student of mine worked in a Pizza Hut franchise whose owner decided to purchase cheaper pineapple pieces from the local supermarket. Within two weeks an auditor turned up and enquired about the imbalance of the pineapple for the number of those type pizzas sold. All transactions are on the register and all are computed and calculated to the most exacting degree.
Even if a shop runs short of a particular component, they will not, they can not bring in a substitute. The protocols and the checks and balances of their business operations do not permit this.
This is the basic outline that governs the Kashrus protocols for all factories and food processors.
The Lord's Rabbi
Rabbi Moshe D Gutnick KAS, Admits Adequacy of Kosher Procedures at Lord of the Fries - he wrote the following, 20/8/13: Rabbi Cohen is 100% correct, Shulchan Aruch clearly permits on Shabbat, supervising and manufacture of foods (OC 307) and he also concedes that with proper procedures, Bishul Akum issues are avoided.

Thank You, Rabbi Cohen
Pas Yisrael for the Lord
