Prior to joining McDonald’s in 2014, he was the Chief Livestock Adviser for the National Farmers’ Union in England and Wales. Pete is a farmers husband and lives in Bedfordshire on the family farm with his wife, son and dog.

Pete will give an insight into McDonald’s both globally and in the UK, detailing how one of the world’s most iconic businesses is using its scale for good to improve the sustainability of its supply chains and build trust from farm to front counter.
