McDonald’s Thanks Indiana Farmers on Nationwide Ag Day
“Without the Indiana farmers, we wouldn’t have the great produce and groceries we serve at McDonald’s today.”
This is Bob Terhune, owner / operator of 16 McDonald’s locations in east-central Indiana. He takes the opportunity on this National Ag Day to thank the great farmers of Hoosier State.
“We take great pride in serving great food, that we are becoming great products, and we cannot have this great food without the help of the Indiana farmers to give us the right kind of products we need to to serve this great food. I am very grateful for what the big farmers in Indiana state are doing. “
In 2019, the McDonald’s system bought $ 28 million in products from farmers in Indiana. That included 5.2 million gallons of milk, 22 million eggs, 3.8 million pounds of pork, 5,000 pounds of corn, and 800,000 pounds of soybeans.
Terhune says, “I’ve been a McDonald’s operator for over 40 years, which I’m very proud of, and it is really important to me that my Indiana McDonald’s get food from my Indiana farmers. I am personally very proud of this fact. I am very proud of the club we have. “
McDonald’s is the nation’s largest single buyer of beef, pork, and potatoes and the second largest buyer of chicken.
