Beginning in November 2008, McDonald's will introduce its new generation of global packaging, which the company says is the most comprehensive rollout in the Brand's history. All 118 McDonald's countries will participate in the new packaging introduction over the next two years.
According to the company, the new packaging uses a blend of bold text and powerful images to illustrate the ingredients and food prepared at McDonald's.
"Our new packaging is a fresh way of sharing McDonald's food quality story with our customers," said Mary Dillon, McDonald's Global Chief Marketing Officer. "The more people know about our food the more they'll love it."
While the packaging will reflect a global framework, the company says it’s flexible enough to accommodate 21 languages while sharing stories about the quality of McDonald's ingredients in a way that is locally relevant for customers around the world.
The new McDonald's packaging will be introduced first in the United Kingdom, Ireland and the United States and continue rolling out worldwide through 2010.
McDonald's new packaging was developed by Boxer, a subsidiary of The Marketing Store Worldwide, located in Birmingham, UK. Boxer also worked on the original "I'm lovin' it" and Global Casting Call packaging designs for McDonald's.
