McDonald’s Commits to Reducing Antibiotic Use in its Global Beef Supply
Action by world’s largest burger chain could signal shift for fast food industry
WASHINGTON - McDonald’s, the world’s largest and most iconic burger restaurant chain, today announced it will address antibiotics use across its global beef supply chain by 2021. The new policy directs its global suppliers to reduce use of the drugs in beef produced for the company, with implementation beginning next year with pilot projects in 10 markets around the world, including the U.S. The Natural Resources Defense Council has been a stakeholder engaged on the policy since early 2018.
