Nestlé Indonesia is trialling an innovative refillable packaging solution to help reduce single-use packaging. The Swiss multinational food and drink company has partnered with start-up Siklus in a three-month trial in South Jakarta. Siklus, which means “cycle” in Bahasa Indonesia, refills household products in a bid to reduce plastic waste.
The program will see Nestlé selling Milo, Dancow and Koko Krunch from tricycle carts fitted with refillable dispensing systems.
According to Nestlé Research & Development “this service allows consumers to choose how much of each product they wish to buy, and to package it using their own containers. Using the Siklus app, they can even order online in advance, and the cart will deliver to their homes at a time of their choosing.”
