For McDonald’s the outcome of great agriculture is great food; and as one of the biggest customers of British and Irish agriculture, we care passionately about the agricultural sector.

Serving safe, high quality, sustainably sourced food that our customers can trust is our number one priority. We look to source food locally wherever possible, in fact this commitment has seen us spend over £26 billion with UK-based businesses over our 43 year history.

McDonald’s is proud to sponsor the Farmers Weekly Awards, which recognises and pays tribute to the very best in UK farming, giving this country its well-deserved reputation for excellence.


Corteva AgriScience

As the newly formed Corteva Agriscience, the agriculture division of DowDuPont, we are extremely proud to be supporting the Farmers Weekly Awards and in particular the Farm Manager of the Year category. Agriculture is going through great change and development and we can certainly resonate with that. Our crop protection pipeline is one of the strongest in the industry with many new active ingredient and product registrations coming through, this means more options available to farmers and we’re excited to be the ones bringing them to market over the next few years.
