Nestlé Australia Reduces Plastic with New Maggi Mug Noodles


Nestlé's Australian division is taking significant steps towards sustainability with its new Maggi Mug Noodles.

Available in chicken and beef flavors, this initiative is part of Maggi’s broader effort to minimize environmental impact. The packaging also includes 50% recycled plastic, using a mass balance method. While the brand recognizes that many consumers enjoy the convenience of portable Maggi noodle cups, it also notes that most people tend to consume these noodles at home, where a simple mug could be used instead.
