Nestle Malaysia to Use Paper Straws for Their Entire UHT Range by the End of 2020

Nestle Malaysia has announced that they will be using paper straws across their entire range of UHT products by the end of 2020 in their battle against plastic waste,

With the initiative making them the first large scale food and beverage company in Asean to do so, the company is expecting to eliminate over 200 million plastic straws annually, which is also in line with the company’s global pledge to turn their packaging 100 percent recyclable by 2025.

According to the Nestle Malaysia Berhad chief executive officer Juan Aranols, they have introduced the use of paper straws for their Milo UHT 125 millilitres (ML) drink packs and for their newly launched Milo Nutri Pluz.

This is all part of our commitment to design environmentally friendly packaging solutions and adopt them with a positive sense of urgency.

“To date, 90 per cent of Nestle Malaysia’s total packaging is already designed for recycling.”

The new paper straws that are being used had gone through a very rigid quality requirement beforehand and according to Nestle Malaysia business executive officer April Wong, the straws are responsibly sourced and are safe for drinking.
