Nestlé joins Bioplastics Feedstock Alliance along with Coke and Heinz

Nestlé has announced that it will work in partnership with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) and seven consumer firms to encourage the responsible development of bioplastics derived from plant materials.

Along with Nestlé, the Bioplastics Feedstock Alliance (BFA) will include key fast-moving consumer goods firms The Coca-Cola Company, Danone, Ford, HJ Heinz Company, Nike, P&G and Unilever.

As consumers across the world seek sustainable alternatives to petroleum-based products, the alliance will aim to guide the responsible selection and harvesting of agricultural materials such as sugar cane, corn, bulrush and switchgrass, used to make bioplastics.

“Joining the alliance means we will be able to help build a more sustainable future for the bioplastics industry while addressing issues such as land use, food security and biodiversity,” said Nestlé’s global research and development sustainability manager, Anne Roulin.
