“I recently learned that McDonald's gets its chickens from Tyson Foods, one of America's cruelest chicken farms. Why do you deal with them?”
We're not sure what you read, Lynne, but McDonalds Canada sources chicken from a company called Cargill, who in turn gets its chicken from independent farmers within a 120 km radius of their London, ON facility.
We have strict policies concerning the treatment of animals and abuse is never tolerated. We also audit our direct supplier's facilities to ensure that these policies are upheld. McDonald's is committed to working with suppliers and outside experts to continuously improve our standards and practices, both within McDonald's and across the industry. We work with such animal welfare experts as Dr. Temple Grandin to help guide us in our animal welfare policies.
