Nestlé Vietnam said in early July 2020 that its Nestiva RTD plant-based drink Sữa 5 loại đậu Nestlé Nesvita with 5 kinds of beans started to shift to paper straws since June 2020. The drink is especially formulated to meet the health and beauty needs of Vietnamese women as it contains calcium and fibre and no lactose. This is the first time the Nesvita range is embracing paper straws. Such move is expected to reduce 8 million plastic straws in 2020.
The paper straw can be bent like the shape of a normal straw.
The five beans in the Nesvita drink are soybeans, black beans, green beans, white beans and red beans.
