Sales rose again in the McDonald's food outlets. Recent data shows the sales have grown by 8.2% for the month of October.

In the United States, sales increased by 5.2%. However, there was significant strong growth in the UK, France and Russia. Meanwhile, the company's Middle East, Asia and Australian operations also saw 12% growth for the month.

The company has achieved outstanding results, far above analysts' predictions, especially in light of the current global economic turmoil. The company has established a policy of reducing the size of meals, rather than increasing the prices, in order to combat global price increases for raw materials.
