New McDonald’s Antibiotic Policy for Beef

McDonald’s announced a new policy to reduce the overall use of antibiotics important to human health, as defined by the World Health Organization (WHO), which applies across 85% of McDonald’s global beef supply chain.

These are the steps McDonald’s is taking as part of the new policy:

  • First, McDonald’s is partnering with supplying beef producers in our top 10 beef sourcing markets to measure and understand current usage of antibiotics across a diverse, global supply chain;
  • By the end of 2020, based on what we have learned, we will establish reduction targets for medically important antibiotics for these markets; and
  • Starting in 2022 – we will be reporting progress against antibiotic reduction targets across our top 10 beef sourcing markets.
