Quality Street Recyclable Wrappers

You may have noticed a difference in your Christmas tubs...

Thousands upon thousands of tins of Quality Street are sold every Christmas, but eagle-eyed chocolate fans may have noticed a change in their tins this year…

This is because the  Nestlé branded favourite announced a move towards recyclable wrappers in a bid to reduce their eco impact.

The landmark move from dual foil and cellulose to recyclable paper wrappers meant Quality Street chose to remove almost 2.5 billion individual pieces of packaging material from its supply chain globally.

Two flavours – Orange Crunch and the Green Triangle – will remain in their existing foil wrappers as they can already be recycled.

This major step will contribute to Nestlé’s commitment to reach 100% recyclable packaging by 2025.
