Inclusion & Diversity Are Core to Who We Are as a Company
Even though we’re a global brand, we haven’t forgotten the entrepreneurial spirit that got us here today. Partnering with diverse suppliers is one way that we’re trying to do our part to accelerate the development of historically under-represented entrepreneurs. Leveraging the unique talents, strengths and assets of our diverse supplier workforce will help enhance the overall McDonald’s customer experience and support continued economic growth.
In 2011, McDonald’s U.S. restaurants purchased nearly $6.7 billion in goods and services from minority- and women-owned companies. This represents just over 67% of our total U.S. System spend for food, packaging, uniforms, operating supplies and premiums. Today, we do business with 76 Tier 1 (direct) minority- and women-owned suppliers. During 2011, McDonald’s USA growth enabled stronger sales to diverse companies such as:
Fair Oak Farms, an African-American supplier of sausage and bacon
F Gavina & Sons Inc, a Woman-owned supplier of coffee
Versatile Card Technologies, an Asian-American supplier of gift cards
