McDonald's Insider Explains Sustainability from a Retailer's View at Texoma Cattlemen's Conference

McDonald's Insider Explains Sustainability from a Retailer's View at Texoma Cattlemen's Conference


Cattle producers around the state are looking forward to learning more about the industry they’re in at the upcoming Texoma Cattlemen’s Conference February 24th. One of the speakers presenting at the conference this year, is Townsend Baily with the McDonald’s corporation, talking about sustainability and what that means from a retailer’s perspective. Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays had the chance to speak with Bailey recently, about what he plans to share with producers later this month.


“There’s a whole lot more for me to learn than for me to share being there,” Bailey said. “But, helping producers understand that marketplace that we’re engaging in and the important role that they play in helping us continue selling more beef in our hamburgers.”


Bailey works with US suppliers in McDonald’s supply chain business, making sure that his company’s standards are met when purchasing food products. His job is to keep the chain fully stocked, manage risk and identify opportunities for resource efficiencies.


“We’re collaborating with our whole supply chain on ways to control costs so we can have a compelling value offering for our customers,” Bailey said. “If they’re not working together then it’s not going to be sustainable for us in the long-term.”
