Chicken restuant Nandos have admitted to serving frozen McCain fries to their customers.
The chain have confirmed this but note that they are not the same chips you can buy in stores. "Our hugely popular chips are developed in partnership with McCain Food Services and the specific recipe is exclusive to Nando's," a spokesperson told Newsbeat.
"They aren't the same as their grocery products such as oven chips," they said.

This doesn't surprise me in the slightest. Its like any own brand foods be it cheap or premium, they will be produced by a big brand manufacturer. I think the example we had in high school was that Walkers Shortbread produces must of Sainsburys premium bakery lines, the guy from Walkers told us this, because its not cost efficient for Sainsburys to have their own place for production. It's one of the reason many people who do taste tests claim they can't tell the difference, because its the same producer.
Another similar example is Union Square shopping centre in Aberdeen, basically every restaurant there has chocolate cake on the menu and be it Italian, Thai or American style every one uses the same (probably frozen) cake.
If you're going to places like Nandos expecting fresh hand cut chips i think you're a little deluded haha.

I doubt many people thought Nando's prepared their chips from scratch onsite, and if you have offsite preparation the name over the door really doesn't matter much.
