After numerous criticism from environmental activists, food and beverage giant Nestle is finally proving its commitment to tackle the plastic menace caused by its single-use plastics.
The company has recently unveiled an eco-friendly wrapper for its newest snack bar range, that it claims will degrade in a marine environment within six months. The wrapper is designated for the company’s YES! fruit and nut bars, after developing a method to use the material at the high speeds necessary for packaging a mass consumer product.
The confectionary company said that it took its research and development team only 10 months to come up with the design and adapt production line to ensure the bars are kept in perfect condition during packaging, transport, and storage.
The announcement came as a major step forward in its drive to make all its packaging reusable or recyclable by 2025.
