McDonald’s Australia says it bought over 295 million kilos of local produce in 2020

The fast food chain also claims to have contributed over A$1 billion to the local supply chain.

The operator of McDonald’s in Australia said it purchased more than 295 million kilos of locally produced ingredients and products in 2020.

This included 30.3 million kilos of beef, 68.9 million litres of fresh milk, 23.6 million kilos of wheat flour, 17.9 million kilos of chicken and 133.3 million kilos of potatoes.

“This year’s shopping list is a powerful demonstration of the resilience of our Aussie farmers and the strength of a local supply chain that has fed McDonald’s customers for 50 years,”  McDonald’s Australia director of supply chain and sustainability Kylie Freeland said in a media release.

Last year, McDonald’s Australia worked with the government to develop a country of origin
webpage to help showcase how much Aussie produce goes into their products.

“By doing so, McDonald’s are helping Australians make informed choices and that ultimately helps our farmers,” Minister  for Agriculture David Littleproud said.
