These containers are filled, and all this beef is processed within 24 hours. About 500 containers are used daily to make enough hamburgers. From the storage, the meat is minced while any pieces of bone are removed. About eight containers can be processed together. After mincing the beef is put in different containers for the hamburgers. They are then put in another machine which shapes the meat into burger shape patties. Fresh and frozen meat is used to bring the burger into the correct temperature. The room is set to about 12 degrees Celsius. About 5 million burgers are rolled on the belt every 24 hours.
