Citing the ability to balance long-term sustainability goals with the need to perform competitively, McDonald's USA has selected Cargill for its 2010 U.S. Sustainability Award.
One of Cargill's strengths was that when one faces a challenge the best of the company came together to solve it, said Pete Richter, president, Cargill global McDonald's business unit. This award showed the progress ohne has made in leveraging the leadership in food and agriculture to tackle complex economic, environmental and social challenges throughout their supply chains.
McDonald's U.S. Supply Chain Management team established the award three years ago to recognise the importance of sustainability as an area of growing importance to the business. Cargill demonstrated a proactive, systematic approach to understanding and seeking solutions to address how the supply chain affects, and is affected by, the world around us, said Susan Forsell, McDonald's vice president, quality systems.
