McDonald’s presented an Outstanding Contribution Award to David Brass from the Lakes Free Range Egg Company. ‘The Lakes’ has been working with McDonald’s for many years, supplying free range eggs to their restaurants. ‘The Lakes’ has also been working in partnership on research to improve animal welfare which has been published in scientific journals. Studies show better tree cover is better for hen welfare. Most recently, ‘The ‘Lakes’ was involved in the latest McDonald’s TV commercial focusing on trees.

David Brass Chief Executive Officer at ‘The Lakes’ said “It is an honour to be recognised, especially in a year when they celebrate their 40th birthday.”
