McDonald's revamps its packaging

It\'s the first time the company is touching the well recognized white and red packaging in about three years, though the Happy Meal did get a new mascot in 2014.

McDonald, the fast-food giant will unveil new packaging initially roll out in the US this month before expanding worldwide to over 36,000 restaurants throughout 2016.

The company’s said the new look is simple, fresh and consistent with a modern and progressive burger company. Added to this is the more visible branding on the packs, with bigger typefaces taking up more space on the bags and cups.

It's the first time the company is touching the well recognized white and red packaging in about three years, though the Happy Meal did get a new mascot in 2014.

Along with the new design, McDonald’s is focusing more on its environmental impact. By 2020, the company hopes to use exclusively recycling or certified materials for its packaging.

“McDonald’s is a fun and modern brand and this was a progressive way to turn our packaging into art and support a community where fashion is an expression,” Matt Biespiel, senior director of global marketing, said. Not everyone is on board with Biespiel’s vision.

For Scott Rothbort, chief market strategist for the Stillman School of Business at Seton Hall University and a money manager who has dealt with investing in the brand, the packaging redesign seems like “a colossal waste of money.” “Packaging is important when you put products on a shelf. McDonald’s does not put products on a shelf,” Rothbort tells Newsweek.

He further says, “A good deal of the products are eaten in the restaurant or in a car, or taken home. Changing the actual packaging has negligible impact, if any, and certainly isn’t worth the money. They need to invest in their menu. I don’t think the packaging is going to benefit them.”

While the packaging might be contentious, everyone seems to be eating up McDonald’s recent all-day breakfast idea, regardless of what it comes wrapped in.
