Nestle aims to reduce packaging in France with reusable containers

Nestle SA announced it has partnered with French retailer Carrefour and global circular company Loop to offer reusable containers for its Nesquik cocoa powder, Ricore chicory and coffee drink, and Chocapic Bio cereals. The transition to reusable containers is part of Nestle’s broader initiative to reduce packaging through the use of alternative packaging delivery systems. Nestle said the cocoa, coffee and chicory drink, and cereal products will be available in reusable stainless-steel containers through Carrefour’s e-commerce delivery platform. The products are expected to be available online and in 10 Carrefour stores in and around Paris by the end of this year.Consumers will be able to return the containers to stores or have them collected from their homes, at which point they will be cleaned, refilled and put back in Loop’s circular system. “The involvement of these three new brands in the Loop approach continues to prove our desire to initiate new projects to reduce our impact on the environment,” said Mathieu Tuau, director of packaging and sustainability at Nestle. “It is with this in mind that we have created the Institute of Packaging Sciences, a dedicated team whose mission is to develop and test the packaging of tomorrow, more respectful of the environment.” Earlier this month, Nestle SA unveiled new commitments and projects as part of the company’s goal to halve its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2030 and realize net zero by 2050. Among those commitments was a pledge of 100% reusable/recyclable packaging by 2025. Initiatives underway include the conversion of Nestle USA’s creamer portfolio to fully recyclable bottles by 2022 and the launch of fully recyclable flexible plastic bags for its Nestle Toll House Bite-Sized Chocolate Chip Edible Cookie Dough. https://www.foodbusinessnews.net/articles/17478-nestle-aims-to-reduce-packaging-in-france-with-reusable-containers

      Nestle should also keep us in the loop on the company's alleged deforestation claims in western Africa.

        That's fantastic news! Nestle's commitment to reducing packaging waste in France by introducing reusable containers is a commendable step towards promoting sustainability and a circular economy. By offering customers the option to purchase products in reusable containers, Nestle is working towards minimizing single-use plastic and decreasing the environmental impact of its packaging. This initiative not only helps to reduce plastic waste but also encourages consumers to adopt more sustainable consumption habits. By implementing such measures, Nestle is setting an example for other companies to follow, demonstrating that innovative solutions can be implemented to address the global issue of plastic pollution. It also highlights the importance of collaboration between industries, governments, and consumers in finding effective ways to reduce waste and protect the environment.
