McDonald's + Russian suppliers

Email template | Change.orgr1

PAOV — While hundreds of large, well-known Western companies have ceased Russian operations, some still use suppliers who are operating in Russia. Lamb Weston is one of the companies that makes french fries for McDonald’s in North America, and they have continued to operate in Russia. This petition is asking McDonald’s to end contracts with their suppliers who are still operating in Russia. If you agree, sign the petition now.

Lamb Weston Holdings, Inc. is an American food processing company that is one of the world’s largest producers and processors of frozen french fries. They make the fries you eat at McDonald’s.

According to data compiled by Yale School of Management, hundreds of American companies have voluntarily curtailed or halted business in Russia due to egregious atrocities committed in Ukraine. Meanwhile, Lamb Weston continues its operation in Russia through Lamb Weston Meijer Rus.

Many companies defend this decision by saying that they are "protecting Russian employees" but in the case of Lamb Weston, some of the company’s senior employees openly support the war in Ukraine.

Namely, the HR director at Lamb Weston Russia has shared a post outlining her stances on Russian aggression against Ukraine. She cites a Russian journalist who says he will be on the Russian side no matter the consequences.

Lamb Weston has avoided public scrutiny because it doesn’t have the name recognition of its clients like fast-food giant McDonald’s. McDonald’s has decided to temporarily close all our restaurants in Russia and pause all operations in the market, but Mcdonald’s continues to purchase Lamb Weston products.

Therefore, we ask McDonald’s to suspend its contract with Lamb Weston, as long as Lamb Weston continues to support Russia’s genocide against the Ukrainian people.
