Nestlé International Travel Retail has been announced as a Headline Sponsor of TRBusiness’ third annual TR Sustainability Week, which is taking place from 4-8 September.

The virtual Travel Retail (TR) Sustainability Week is the DF&TR industry’s only event dedicated to sustainability, with live conference sessions and festival of digital content that takes a holistic view of this important topic, embracing everything from ingredients and packaging to health and wellbeing, diversity, equality and inclusion.

“We are very proud to be a headline sponsor of TR Sustainability Week,” said Nestlé ITR General Manager Stewart Dryburgh.

“Having been active participants in the previous events, we welcome the opportunity to further strengthen our commitment to driving the travel retail sustainability agenda and delivering tangible results.

“This year, we are delighted that our Global Sustainability Manager Stephane Detailler will be taking part, sharing insights and updates on Nestlé’s regeneration progress and vision.

“At Nestlé we understand and support the need for travel retail stakeholders to come together to make decisions that are not just good for us and our shareholders, but for society and the planet as well.”

On the agenda for this year’s event is a session dedicated to ‘The Great Taste Revolution – Sustainable Trends in Food and Beverages’, which will explore how travel retail is evolving to the rise of bio, organic, sustainable, vegan, and ‘low-no’ foods and beverages.

It’s a topic close to Nestlé’s heart, as the company has been investing in programmes such as the Cocoa Plan and the Coffee Plan since 1999, with the aim of delivering 100% sustainable cocoa and coffee by 2025 while also focussing on the human aspects of sustainability by supporting farmers and their families.

These initiatives include support to enable children to continue their education, empower women and offer training in more sustainable farming methods that increase production.

Another session during TR Sustainability Week, ‘Green by Design’, focuses on the need for travel retail packaging to become more sustainable by replacing virgin plastic with more eco-friendly alternatives.

Nestlé is making great strides in this field – Smarties was the first global confectionery brand to switch to recyclable paper, leading to the removal of ‘400 metric tonnes of plastic from the environment’, according to the company.

The company is on track to deliver on its commitment to that; by 2025, 100% of Nestlé’s packaging is set to be recyclable or reusable.

“TR Sustainability Week aligns perfectly with our Generation Regeneration programme, Net Zero Roadmap and focus on delivering products that are sustainable from ‘Farm to Fork’,” concluded Dryburgh.
