Searching for Social Good in an Egg McMuffin

  1. Haracz explained that if a company like McDonald’s hypothetically decided to put an item with blueberries on the menu, they’d have to plan it 2–3 years in advance because, otherwise, it would decimate the world’s supply of blueberries. That’s how big they are.
  2. We also got into one of my other favorite fast-food stats, which is that McDonald’s uses almost five percent(!!!) of the eggs produced in the United States. That means that when McDonald’s makes the decision to use cage-free eggs in its Egg McMuffins (which it has), it pushes the entire food system to do the same.
