Australian mobile users will have the option of using their devices to scan special packaging on McDonald's items to trace the origin of their meal. The TrackMyMacca application uses augmented reality and will work on packaging for selected products through June. "As a business we’re incredibly proud that over 90% of our food and packaging needs are met right here in Australia.
