Exclusive to New Zealand, Cadbury is trialling new paper packaging on its Cadbury Energy chocolate blocks.
Sourced sustainably from paper, the recyclable packaging hasn’t been used on any other Cadbury chocolates in the past.
In a statement online, the company said it was committed to making its packaging as sustainable as possible.
“Investing in packaging alternatives is one part of this,” Cadbury said.
“We will be conducting sampling of the Cadbury Energy blocks so we can hear what local shoppers think of the new packaging and incorporate learnings into future trials.”
The confectionery company said the paper wrapping trial was an important step to achieving its goal of making all its packaging recyclable by 2025.
It was the first time Cadbury had used a paper material for its wrapping that didn’t include laminates, foils or plastics.
However, it wasn’t being rolled out across all products because it was created with new technology and the company needed to prove it could work.
“This trial is playing an important part in shaping our sustainable packaging approach – not just here in New Zealand, but for Cadbury across the world,” it said.
