KITKAT Breaks for Good

Nestlé Cocoa Plan
To make great chocolate, you need great cocoa. But life can be challenging where cocoa is grown. That’s why we developed the Nestlé Cocoa Plan: better farming, better lives – and better cocoa.

From bean to bar, to help create a product that benefits everyone we are focused on:
• Better farming: providing training and resources to help farmers improve their crops, increase their incomes and improve their livelihoods
• Better lives: tackling child labour, empowering women and improving education to help communities thrive
• Better cocoa: enhancing supply chain traceability and tackling deforestation.

Nestlé is committed to sourcing 100% of our cocoa through the Nestlé Cocoa Plan by 2025. In Australia, all KitKat blocks and bars are made with cocoa certified by Rainforest Alliance.

Investing in breaks for good:

30% recycled plastic content

In 2022, KitKat became Australia’s first chocolate bar with a wrapper using recycled plastic.

In the first year, KitKat will pack more than 40 million 45g KitKat bars in 30% recycled plastic using mass balance – while continuing to keep KitKat bars crisp, fresh and delicious.

The switch will cut virgin plastic used in our wrappers by around 250,000m2 a year – enough virgin plastic to cover 200 x 50m swimming pools!

This is only the beginning of our journey as we want to reduce the amount of virgin plastic we are using on as many KitKat bars as possible, as fast as possible.

Sourcing 100% renewable electricity

Alongside other favourite Nestlé brands including Milo, Allen’s, Nescafé, Uncle Tobys and Purina pet food, KitKat products are now made in a factory where 100% of the electricity is sourced from wind power.

This means Aussies enjoying Nestlé products made in our Australian factories can do so knowing that they’re made using renewably sourced electricity.

Breaks for Good

Is it possible to taste respect? We believe so.

Real respect means doing, not just saying. Like ensuring our crops are sustainable, that our packaging creates less waste, and by caring for our farmers and the planet. At Nescafé we believe all the respect going into growing and making of our coffee comes out in every delicious sip.

100% sustainably grown

We work closely with farmers and communities to ensure we don’t just deliver the best tasting coffee – but that it is made with care and respect. As part of this journey, our team has worked hard to ensure that 100% of the coffee beans used to manufacture our Nescafé Blend 43 coffee are sustainably grown.

Investing in a sustainable future

We have an extensive program in place to help expand our sustainability efforts in coffee farming under the Nescafé Plan 2030. As part of the program we are working with coffee farmers to help them transition to regenerative agriculture, and work towards reducing carbon emissions.

Our Nescafé factory runs on coffee too.
From bean to cup, our team has been working hard to reduce our environmental impact, while creating a great cup of Nescafé coffee.

The coffee grounds left over from the brewing process that makes your cup of Nescafé are being used to power the Nescafé factory in Gympie, Queensland.

More than 80 per cent of the energy used by the factory comes from renewable sources, including used coffee grounds.

Together with locally sourced sawdust, the waste coffee grounds fuel a boiler generating the steam needed in the manufacturing process. This process created more than 239,500 gigajoules of energy in 2022 – enough to power every home in Gympie!

But there’s more – this keeps the spent coffee grounds out of our waste stream, reducing waste transportation and disposal.
