Across its system, which reaches more than 200 countries worldwide, the Company is mobilizing its assets in marketing, and in science, and engaging in community outreach to increase awareness and spur action.

McDonald’s is committed to providing high quality food and superior service, at a great value, in a clean and welcoming environment. We work with our employees, franchisees, and suppliers to serve a balanced array of food choices and provide nutrition information to help customers make sound decisions. With guidance from our Global Advisory Council (GAC), an international team of independent experts assembled by McDonald’s to provide professional guidance in the areas of nutrition and children’s well-being, we continue to evolve our overall approach, while supporting our individual markets in meeting the specific needs and requirements of their local cultures and governments. Since 2004, the GAC has provided McDonald’s guidance on key areas such as global nutrition labeling, recipe reformulation, the development of internal metrics to gauge our progress, and approaches for motivating children to eat more fruits and vegetables.
While McDonald’s is a global company, we have a local presence in the communities we serve. Our suppliers are a network of trusted businesses and wherever appropriate, we locally source. We work hard, together with our suppliers and independent restaurant franchisees, to strive toward a sustainable future – for our company and the communities in which we operate.
