Future Food: McDonald's Beef Carbon Project

Dan Saladino investigates McDonald's work on beef farms and sustainability, in the second of three programmes profiling the Future Food finalists in the Food and Farming Awards.

Dan Saladino visits Stephen Hobbs's beef farm near Milton Keynes, to find out about a project by McDonald's that aims to help beef farmers work more sustainably.

As he walks round, Dan is joined by Connor McVeigh, the Supply Chain Director for McDonald's UK, which sourced 40,000 tonnes of beef from around 16,000 British and Irish farms in 2015.

This is the second in a special series of three programmes, profiling the finalists in the 'Future Food' category in the 2016 BBC Food and Farming Awards. Joining Dan are this year's judges, farmer Mike Gooding and Managing Editor of The Grocer magazine, Julia Glotz.

Producer: Rich Ward.
