    Mondelēz pilots QR codes with sustainability and wellbeing information on UK packs

    Mondelēz International on Tuesday announced the launch of a new pilot in the UK which will provide consumers with information on the company’s sustainability initiatives, including recycling and mindful snacking via a QR code on pack.

    By scanning the QR code on the outer packaging, consumers can access a new online platform ‘SnackingRight’ which provides information about the company’s global Snacking Made Right programmes, including its cocoa sourcing programme Cocoa Life, tips on mindful snacking and recycling information.

    The QR code will be piloted as part of the company’s on pack summer promotion with Merlin Entertainments across a range of Cadbury, Oreo and Barny products, with the Snacking Right platform continuing to include further brands, products and geographies in the future.

    The platform also features the Recycle Now locator from environmental charity WRAP, helping consumers find out what packaging materials are collected and recycled at nearby locations.

    “There is a thirst for knowledge by people to recycle packaging such as confectionary wrapping,” Helen Bird, head of business collaboration ay WRAP, commented.

    “Last month more than half a million people visited the Recycle Now website to find their nearest collection points for this type of plastic and we are pleased to be working with Mondelēz International to pilot QR codes which link to the Recycle Now website.”

    The pilot is a global first for Mondelēz International and is being trialed in the UK as part of its ‘Pack Light and Right’ sustainability packaging strategy. The business said the QR code approach leverages technology to provide consumers with important sustainability and well-being information without having to add multiple labels on pack physically.

    Sandra Toivo, senior brand manager for Cadbury multipacks, said: “We know living a more sustainable and healthier lifestyle is important to our consumers but sometimes they do not feel they have the right information about the products they choose to do so.

    “Through the SnackingRight platform we are testing new digital solutions to meet this consumer need. I’m looking forward to seeing the results of the pilot and hope that by working with WRAP and their Recycle Now locator we engage more consumers in recycling initiatives now and help form habits for the future.”
