Nestlé launches bio-based lids and scoops

Nestlé has announced it will introduce bio-based lids and scoops made mostly from sugar cane for its range of nutrition products for infants and children.

The bio-based plastics, which are made from the renewable plant material, are designed to help reduce the company’s use of fossil-based plastics.

The lids and scoops are made from 66% and 95% sugar cane, respectively. They are certified as plant-based packaging and are recyclable in countries that have recycling facilities for polyethylene (PE).

The company said the solutions have the same properties and functionalities as conventional plastic ones, without compromising the high level of hygiene and freshness required.

The bio-based lids and scoops complement the tin can, which is metal based.

Nestlé Nutrition’s NAN infant formula packed in the new packaging materials was introduced in Hong Kong in 2020 and will be available in other markets globally in 2021, including for other brands such as BEBA and GUIGOZ.

Wyeth Nutrition, a Nestlé subsidiary, is also launching the new bio-based packaging for its brands SMA, LITTLE STEPS, S-26 and ILLUMA.

In addition, Nestlé Health Science will introduce the new packaging material for its Althéra, Alfaré, Alfamino, Modulen and Peptamen Junior brands, which are part of its global range of paediatric food for special medical purposes.
