He’s best known as “Big Al, your beverage pal,” but Alex Conti, Senior Director, U-S Menu Management for McDonald’s has been more than just a friend for the dairy industry … his innovations to expand the amount of dairy the food giant uses has made him a major benefactor for dairy farmers throughout the country.
In this edition of the Milking Parlor, we get to meet Conti (trust me, I tried to get a picture of him when he spoke to a recent gathering of dairy farmers … but that’s a whole other story!) and listen in as he details how McDonald’s works more milk, cheese and ice cream into the tasty treats the company offers. From the old standbys … Big Macs, Quarter Pounders with Cheese, Egg McMuffin … to the new line of McCafe and Frappe drinks, the Golden Arches continues to be a major buyer and seller of dairy products.
