Kitkats take a break from recycling


The makers of Kitkat have been criticised for introducin­g new packaging that cannot be recycled.

The chocolate bars used to be wrapped in foil, and then paper, which could be recycled. The new plastic wrapping has a logo on the back that reads “don’t recycle”.

Edward Plum, a customer, said: “What was wrong with the fully recyclable foil and paper they used to come in? It was also far more satisfying to open.”

Nestlé admitted the packaging “isn’t good enough” and said it was “working hard” to rectify the situation.
