McDonald's Corp. announced Tuesday that it would display nutrition information on the packaging for most of its menu items next year.

The world's largest restaurant company, like other fast-food chains, already has detailed nutrition information posted on its Web site, and a list of menu items and their content was available at many outlets when consumers requested it. But the chain had resisted calls to post calories and fat content prominently in its restaurants or on its packaging.

The new packaging will be introduced in McDonald's restaurants in North America, Europe, Asia and Latin America starting in the first half of 2006.
