Packaging helps protect food and beverages, ensure product quality and safety, communicate nutritional information and prevent food waste.
However, these essential requirements should not come at the expense of the planet. That’s why we are continually developing more sustainable packaging and committed to reducing waste from packaging.
Our vision is ambitious: a world in which none of Nestlé’s packaging, including plastics, ends up in landfill or as litter on land or in seas, oceans and waterways.
In particular, we are doing our best to reduce our plastic waste by increasing our use of recycled plastic, reducing our use of new plastic, and helping create circular systems that make it easier to collect, recycle and reuse these products.
By 2025, 100% of our packaging will be recyclable or reusable, based on the Ellen MacArthur Foundation Global Commitment reporting rules, and we will reduce our use of virgin plastics by one third.
To tackle the complex and global challenges of food waste and loss, we consider our own operations, collaborate with industry peers and educate consumers to make sure more food gets from field to table.
