A technical breakthrough in confectionery packaging will see Nestlé’s ‘YES!’ snack bar range wrapped in recyclable paper for the first time. UK based experts, working at Nestlé’s confectionery R&D centre in York, have found a way to use a recyclable paper wrapper in a high-speed ‘flow wrap cold seal’ packaging line. It represents a world first for a process that, in the past, was only suitable for plastic films and laminates.
Two dominant messages emerged from the Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association (CHSA) conference on plastics. First, products packaging and processes need to be designed with recycling in mind. Second, an integrated approach, from the start to the finish of the supply chain, is crucial if recycling is to be increased. CHSA members, who are working hard to build environmental sustainability into the heart of their businesses, were addressed by a panel of experts.
