Nestle Indonesia, the major global food and drinks producer has selected Re>Pal’s HD1210L for its Kejayan and Karawang factories. This is as a part of its drive towards its 2025 goal of using only sustainable packaging in its supply chain. As part of this, Nestle transitions in a phased basis from unsustainable timber pallets to Re>Pal™’s 100% ‘zero waste’ plastic its warehouses.
Steve Najoan, Head of Logistics of Nestle Indonesia commented “We have been impressed by Re>Pal’s sustainable business model and we have been trialling these pallets extensively to ensure that the Re>Pal pallet works with our conveyors and material handling equipment. We are phasing in the use of the HD1210L pallet at our Kejayan and Karawang factories and we will look for other opportunities across Indonesia to leverage this 100% recycled plastic pallet.
Putut Pramono, Head of Sustainability for Nestle Indonesia continued “In pursuit of our goals for continued improvements in our sustainability footprint, the low carbon, zero waste Re>Pal pallet is a perfect fit in our supply chain. As well as using the pallets, we are now partnering with Re>Pal to examine if Re>Pal can integrate any of our plastic or flexibles waste stream into these pallets for future orders in 2020, as this would be an ideal circular economy product if we can achieve this.”
I’m thrilled that Nestle is another fantastic brand for Re>Pal and follows on the use of our HD pallet by one Nestle’s factories in the Philippines. We have worked very hard with the team in Indonesia to complete the acceptance of this HD1210L in the warehouses. It is fantastic to work closely with the Nestle Indonesia team and I sincerely hope we can do more work on both the pallet and waste streams within Nestle’s organisation across all of their business divisions.”
