McDonald's Courtesy Corporation FAQ
Do you have healthier meal options than just burgers and fries?
McDonald’s offers a variety of wholesome options such as Apple Slices, a range of fresh Premium Salads, Egg Whites, Grilled all White Meat Chicken, and the Fruit ‘N Yogurt Parfait. We also now cook our World Famous Fries in a Canola blend cooking oil, which provides 0 grams of trans fat per serving, and is one of the healthiest commonly used cooking oils. It’s all about balance, choices, and moderation. We are proud of the variety of choices that our menu offers.
What food vendor do you get your produce from?
We have suppliers and farms across the country who are dedicated to providing us with the freshest possible ingredients. They have to comply with very strict quality and safety regulations, and all produce is checked by both McDonald’s and the USDA. Although we can’t go down the street to the local farmers market, we are proud to work with many Midwestern suppliers such as Great Lakes Cheese, Kemps Milk, and Schreiber. In 2012, McDonald’s purchased 79.4 million dollars worth of Wisconsin agricultural purchases such as beef, eggs, cheese, milk, cucumbers, and cranberries.

Did "Super Size Me" hurt your business or had it changed the way you do things?
"Super Size Me" did not hurt our business at all. if any thing, it made us realize that we weren't telling our story well enough. Ultimately it inspired us to talk about making balanced choices in presentations, at health/wellness events, and in our restaurants.
