Nestlé MILO UHT products will now be sold with paper straws instead of plastic straws.

This was announced on Wednesday.

This announcement will see Nestlé become one the first food companies in Fiji to remove all plastic straws from its packaging.

The move will eliminate nearly 250,000 plastic straws from Fiji each year, contributing to reducing plastic waste and in line with the company’s commitment to make 100 per cent of its packaging recyclable or reusable by 2025.

The new MILO UHT paper straws are responsibly sourced using FSC certified paper and adhere to very stringent quality requirements.

“Plastic waste is a pressing challenge in Fiji, and we are committed to reducing our use of plastic,” Jason Jezewski, general manager Nestlé Fiji said.

“Transitioning MILO UHT to paper straws is just one example of this intent. We have made strides in our journey to a waste-free future, but we know we have more work to do.

“We’re proud to be leading the shift away from single-use plastics and will continue to invest in more sustainable packaging innovations and solutions.”

Let us all support this environment friendly initiative.
