Nestle Wraps Yes Bar in Paper as It Seeks to Cut Plastic Waste


Nestle SA is responding to criticism that the food industry uses too much plastic by introducing paper wrapping for a confectionery bar, made in a way it calls an industry first.

The Swiss food company said it will start selling Yes fruit and nut bars for Europe in paper after developing a method to use that material at the high speeds necessary for packaging a mass consumer product. Normally the machines that wrap such food items rely on plastic because it’s resilient, stretchable and light.
