If you love the McDonald’s Filet-o-Fish, you would love to know a little trivia about it as well – the fish used in the India McDonald’s menu items comes from the Alaskan waters, and the fish-patty is particularly sourced from Cochin.
Why is this trivia important you ask?
Know this…McDonald’s signed an agreement to not expand cod fishing into untouched parts of the Arctic as reported by The Economic Times.
Along with a few seafood industry giants, McDonald’s signed this agreement that aims to protect increased fishing in the Arctic. The agreement above includes not buying fish caught farther north. “This commitment, which is effective immediately, will continue until there is robust and independent scientific research that demonstrates fishing activities in the area will not cause serious harm to the marine environment,” says Keith Kenny, Vice President of sustainability at McDonald’s.
