Nestlé has announced a new landmark in its sustainability journey, by increasing the use of recycled materials across its café-inspired coffee portfolio.

Starbucks by Nespresso and Nescafé Farmers Origins are the latest brands within the café-inspired portfolio to introduce capsules made using 80% recycled aluminium across the entire retail range.

As well, the capsules are now made with thinner aluminium foil, so each capsule uses 9.2% less aluminium and is 8% lighter than before.

Aluminium is infinitely recyclable and one of the most widely recycled materials in the world. Recycled aluminium requires 95% less energy to produce than virgin aluminium, so it is well-suited to use in a circular business model. Aluminium is also a perfect barrier to oxygen, light and humidity, protecting the freshness and aromas of high-quality coffee.
