March 6, 2019 - Nestlé announced the launch of a new Nesquik All Natural powder. The new Nesquik features a simplified, natural ingredients list and comes in a recyclable paper pouch.

Nestlé is launching the new Nesquik All Natural in five European markets in the coming weeks: France, Germany, Italy, Portugal and Spain. It will sit alongside the existing Nesquik range, and will be rolled out to other European countries in the near future.

According to Nestlé, the new pouch is made of a coated paper that is recyclable in the paper stream. The paper is from sustainable sources, certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). The pouches have been extensively tested to make sure they keep the Nesquik powder in perfect condition during transport and storage.

“The recyclable paper pouch is the first of its kind, one of our key initiatives towards providing more sustainable packaging across our product portfolio,” said Yasser AbdulMalak, Head of the Dairy category for Europe, Middle East and North Africa. “Moving from plastic to paper is a big challenge, but an important step in designing the food packaging of the future. We have taken that step today to ensure we truly meet consumers' demand for more natural and sustainable food.”

The launch of the new Nesquik comes less than two months after Nestlé's commitment to accelerate action to tackle plastic waste. It is one of the first products to put that pledge into action, moving from recyclable plastic to recyclable paper packaging.
