Harriet is responsible for Agriculture & Sustainable Sourcing at McDonald’s UK & Ireland and is based on her family’s beef & sheep farm in Staffordshire.
With a passion for Agriculture, her career so far has involved roles with retailers ALDI and Co-op Food, and an industry placement with Sainsbury’s.
She graduated from Harper Adams University in 2014 and during her studies was a columnist for the Farmers Weekly and spent her placement year at McDonald’s - which inspired her to return to the business in her current role in 2020.
In 2018, she received the Meat Business Women ‘One to Watch’ Award and in 2017 was named a ‘Rising Star’ by Farmers Weekly.
Harriet is a member of the NFU’s Next Generation Policy Forum and part of the Meat Business Women UK&I Committee.
Having been an active member of Young Farmers, she continues to be a club leader for her local club Eccleshall YFC where she enjoys coaching younger members in public speaking and stock judging, as well as organising various charity events.
