A new facility was recently inaugurated by food and beverage firm Nestle in Europe that will work to further the use of environmentally-friendly packaging and reduce plastic waste in packaging, the company announced in a release Thursday. 

Located in Vevey, Switzerland, the Nestle Institute of Packaging Science will use a variety of materials and technologies to make advancements in environmentally friendly packaging, including compostable and biodegradable materials, high performance barrier papers, and refillable or reusable packaging. 

“Our vision is a world in which none of our packaging ends up in a landfill or as litter. To achieve this, we introduce reusable packaging solutions and pioneer environmentally friendly packaging materials,” said the firm’s chief executive officer, Mark Schneider, at the inauguration event. “Furthermore, we support the development of local recycling infrastructure and deposit schemes to help shape a waste-free world. The Nestle Institute of Packaging Sciences enables us to create a strong pipeline of sustainable packaging solutions for Nestle products across businesses and markets.”

In 2018, Nestle pledged to make 100% of its packaging recyclable or reusable by 2025. The company has recently launched several new environmentally-friendly packaging options, like the use of recyclable paper packaging in Nesquik All Natural cocoa powder.
