About company

What results from combining an American ex-president with fast food? 

A juice producer.


We wanted an international-sounding name because business partners responded better to that in the 1990s. So we combined former US president Carter’s surname with the McDonald’s fast food chain. We were happy that we came up with a company name that can be personified. 
Milan Pašmik, Chairman of the Board
