McDonald’s Australia meets cage-free egg target
McDonald’s Australia has confirmed that it has achieved its goal of using cage-free eggs by the end of 2017.
Confirming the achievement with Australian Food News, McDonald’s said all eggs supplied to its restaurants are now cage-fee.
The news comes at the same time McDonald’s headquarters in the US has announced a 2025 commitment to have all McDonald’s packaging come from renewable sources.
By 2025, 100 per cent of McDonald’s guest packaging will come from renewable, recycled, or certified sources with a preference from Forest Stewardship Council certification.
McDonald’s has also set the goal of recycling all guest packaging worldwide.
Francesca DeBiase, McDonald’s Chief Supply Chain and Sustainability Officer, said as the world’s largest restaurant company, McDonald’s has a responsibility to use its global scale for good.
“Our customers have told us that packaging waste is the top environmental issue they would like us to address,” DeBiase said.
“Our ambition is to make changes our customers want and to use less packaging, sourced responsibly and designed to be taken care of after use, working at and beyond our restaurants to increase recycling and help create cleaner communities.”
To reach its goals, McDonald’s will work with industry experts, local governments and environmental associations.
Today, 50 per cent of McDonald’s customer packaging comes from, renewable, recycled or certified sources. An estimated 10 per cent of McDonald’s restaurants globally are already recycling customer packaging.
