It is important to us that our suppliers operate sustainable and profitable businesses and benefit from their partnership with McDonald’s Australia. It is equally important to us that we source our products in a responsible and ethical manner that contributes to the development of sustainable agriculture and food manufacturing processes.
Many of our suppliers have been with us for decades; some since we opened our very first restaurant in Yagoona in 1971.
Macca’s is committed to supporting Australian producers and manufacturers and our first preference is always to source produce from within Australia whenever it is viable and appropriate to do so.
The foundation of our social responsibility supplier program is our global Code of Conduct for Suppliers which outlines McDonald’s minimum requirements in the areas of employment and workplace practices. The aim of this program is to protect the health, safety and human rights of workers and audits are regularly conducted in Australia to ensure suppliers are meeting our social responsibility expectations.
Our animal welfare expectations currently meet or exceed all minimum standards in Australia, and we adhere to McDonald’s Animal Health and Welfare Guiding Principles. To ensure compliance, our beef, poultry, egg and pork suppliers’ primary plants are annually audited by independent third-party auditors. Our chicken meat is sourced from producers with RSPCA Approved certification.
We work with all our suppliers to assist them to provide us with an uninterrupted, long-term supply of quality food and packaging in a way that minimises our impact on the environment and communities. We also encourage the protection of resources that our suppliers share with the communities in which they operate.
