Leaders with vision

Jacinta from Levin

My heart goes out to the Foxton people trying to stop the PN Council from dumping treated sewage into the Manawatu River (story in today's Chronicle) and to the Hokio people trying to get the HDC to stop dumping treated sewage into what what was once a beautiful little lake (The Pot) and is now a toxic site from which the public are banned. Can someone tell me why, why, why can't every home have a modern septic tank system! Think of the massive amounts of money we would save? When the tank needed emptying it could be taken to some place that converted sewage into fertiliser (this is done in other countries) and used in a beneficial way for the environment. Why do councils keep throwing massive amounts of our taxpayers money at the problem and not at innovative solutions for the future well-being of people and the planet? I don't recall giving my consent to the people I voted for to do this with the money I give them. Did you?

Your Big Mac, ordered from here.


New Zealand’s lush green pastures and temperate climate means our country produces some of the world’s best beef.

New Zealand is one of McDonald’s top ten beef-producing markets and it’s such a hit with the rest of the world that a significant percentage of NZ’s beef exports are to international McDonald’s markets.

We partner with many Kiwi farmers who produce our beef, including Whangara Farms which was the first beef farm outside of Europe to be invited to the McDonald’s Flagship Farmers programme.

ANZCO Foods, based in the small Taranaki town of Waitara, are responsible for making our 100% beef patties. About 90% of the staff at the Waitara plant are locals and they manage to produce around half a million patties each day.

Our quality beef cuts are minced and that’s it. No additives or fillers, just mince that is formed in patties, before they’re flash-frozen and sent to restaurants.
