McDonalds accessible packaging reinforces an inclusive vision

McDonald's accessible packaging reinforces an inclusive vision

 December 06, 2021

To mark International Day of People with Disabilities, McDonald's highlighted the importance of its accessible packaging in India. 

McDonald’s mission is simple: to make delicious, feel-good moments easy for everyone. In western and southern India, McDonald's partnered with valued suppliers and partners to make eating McDonald’s food easier for people with disabilities.

Inclusive packaging for all

According to a Census report in India, more than 21 million people across the country have a disability, with approximately 28% of these people having disabilities related to movement.

Until more recently, packaging used in McDonald's restaurants in western and southern India required customers to use both of their hands to enjoy McDonald's food. This made it difficult for some people with upper-limb disabilities to eat in McDonald's restaurants.

McDonald's worked with HAVI, who worked with Parksons Packaging, to develop packaging that enabled McDonald's food to be eaten using only one hand. By International Day of People with Disabilities on December 3, HAVI had delivered – and now, McDonald's new packaging is available in McDonald’s restaurants across western and southern India.

McDonald's is grateful they could come together with HAVI to help ensure everyone’s McDonald’s experience is delicious and enjoyable.

Inclusivity is one of McDonald's cherished values – and it’s something they’re working toward every day.
