Progressive Young Farmers
Every year we give undergraduate students the chance to spend 12 months getting to know every part of our supply chain. They follow our products from farms to our restaurants and get the opportunity to work with a number of different suppliers, farmers and stakeholders around the country. The programme also includes mentoring by a progressive farmer who supplies us with beef, chicken, potatoes, pork, dairy or eggs.
Throughout the placement, Progressive Young Farmers undertake specific projects to gain a better understanding of technical efficiency and sustainability within the supply chain. This includes working on farms, in food manufacturing and spending time with us at the McDonald’s UK Head Office in London and in our restaurants.
