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.

Earlier in the year Coinadrink celebrated its 50th anniversary by hosting a Party Night at the National Motor Cycle Museum. The charity chosen as the beneficiary of the evening was Macmillan Cancer Support. The evening was a great success and the various fund raising activities on the night were very generously supported.
A cheque for £5826.09, the proceeds of the evening, was presented by Roger Williams, Managing Director of Coinadrink to Eloise Davidson who received it on behalf of Macmillan Cancer Support. Eloise thanked everybody at Coinadrink for the magnificent amount they had raised. She went on to say ‘Macmillan together with charities generally had suffered a slowdown in donations during the recession so this cheque was very welcome’.
Roger Williams commented that ‘the company was very appreciative of the work Macmillan Cancer Support carried out. The families of some Coinadrink staff had been very grateful for the support they had received, at some challenging times in their family lives, from the Macmillan nurses. Roger Williams went on to say ‘he was pleased that the evening had raised a significant amount of money to help them carry on with their good work’.
