Nestlé has announced the launch of its YES! snack bars in a new recyclable paper wrapper. For the first time, a confectionery bar has been packaged in a paper using a high-speed flow wrap technology.
This launch has unlocked the potential for recyclable paper packaging to be widely used in the confectionery industry. Up until now, the high-speed production of shelf-stable snacks was only achieved using plastic films and laminates. Now paper can be used at large scale while guaranteeing product quality and freshness over the entire shelf life.
This paper wrapper is a further step in Nestlé’s commitment to making all its packaging recyclable or reusable by 2025. The wrapper is widely recycled in the countries where it will be available. The paper is from sustainable sources, certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) and The Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification.
YES! snack bars are ‘tasty by nature’ with wholesome ingredients such as fruit, vegetables and nuts. Among others, flavours include Dark Chocolate, Sea Salt & Almond; Dark Chocolate, Banana & Pecan; and Raspberry & Chia Seeds.
Each YES! nutbar is vegetarian, high in fibre, and a source of protein. The fruit and vegetable bars are vegan, gluten-free, lactose-free, high in fibre and have no added sugar.
YES! will now be available in Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Ireland, Luxemburg, Malta, the Netherlands, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
