We buy beef from 18,000 Irish family farms, meaning that 1 in 5 hamburgers sold in McDonald’s across Europe is of Irish origin.
We are the largest purchaser of Irish beef by volume every year. We purchase 40,000 tonnes of beef which is then exported to other European markets, meaning that every year one in five hamburgers sold in McDonald’s in Europe is of Irish origin.
Every McDonald’s beef product sold in Ireland is made from 100% pure Irish beef – with just a little salt and pepper added after cooking. That’s why we can use the Bord Bia certified member logo on our beef – it shows that the beef has come from one of 18,000 accredited farms across Ireland that supply McDonald's.
So, whether you are in one of our restaurants from Athlone to Zurich, there’s a pretty good chance that the beef you’re eating has come from one of our Irish farms.
