No, never.

If you receive any emails or view web-based activity seeking bank or credit card details, claiming to be from McDonald’s New Zealand, we ask that you please lodge a complaint with the Ministry of Consumer Affair's SCAMwatch department.

Where does McDonald’s stand on animal welfare? 

At McDonald's we believe animals should be treated humanely, and free from cruelty, abuse and neglect. We have strict standards concerning the treatment of animals and abuse is not tolerated. We work with animal welfare experts to help guide us in our standards, which cover critical areas such as feed, water, air quality and humane treatment.  In New Zealand, all McDonald’s suppliers comply with or exceed New Zealand animal welfare legislation.

One of the initiatives implemented globally by McDonald’s is our work with industry recognised animal welfare experts, including Dr Temple Grandin.  Dr Grandin is highly regarded for her work in setting and continually improving global animal welfare standards, and has supported the development of our animal welfare programmes here in New Zealand.
