When it comes to that delicious choc-malt taste and iconic crunch, Aussies know ‘It’s gotta be MILO®’. We manufacture over 11,000 tonnes of MILO® a year at our Smithtown factory in NSW – that’s 17 cups of MILO® made every second for Australia and New Zealand.
Between all the MILO® making, testing, tasting, packing, filling, receiving and despatching, we need to find ways to minimise our impact on the environment and support our farming communities.
We have done this in 3 key ways:
Our renowned choc-malt MILO® taste comes from the natural cacao tree beans. The beans are fermented, roasted, shelled, and ground to make cocoa.
The Nestlé Cocoa Plan aims to improve the lives of cocoa farmers, their families and their communities. Our vision is to help cocoa farmers run profitable farms, respect the environment and enjoy a good quality of life, and for their children to benefit from an education and see cocoa farming as a respectable profession. All of the cocoa in MILO® is Rainforest Alliance Certified. Rainforest Alliance share our vision to help cocoa farmers run profitable farms, respect the environment and enjoy a good quality of life; and for their children to benefit from an education and see cocoa farming as a respectable profession.
We are working hard to achieve a waste free future.
We are helping create a future where cleverly designed packaging, innovative new materials, better recycling infrastructure and reusable or refillable packaging can reduce waste from contaminating the land and oceans. Reaching this goal requires participation from all levels of society. We are proud to be a catalyst for that change, inspiring a future where people and partners everywhere rethink how they engage with packaging. The MILO® range carries the Australasian Recycling Label, which helps you to recycle right by showing you which bin to put each piece of packaging in.
We have committed to a holistic, science-based target approach to tackling climate change, with an ambition to achieve zero net greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
Our factory in Smithtown, NSW where MILO® is made is using energy derived from a local waste stream that is also a renewable source of energy. More than 80% of the energy the factory uses comes from locally sourced sawdust and the ash that is created is then used for potting mix and soil conditioning.
Building on this, the Nestlé Smithtown factory is now sourcing 100% renewable electricity generated from
