    Commenting on the research findings, Jemma Handley, senior brand manager for Quality Street at Nestlé, said: “Brands like Quality Street hold a special place in people’s hearts, they hold a sense of nostalgia. Quality Street, with its 87-year legacy, remains a magical brand that brings debate to Brits’ Christmases. Each sweet holds a special significance, and the tradition of vying for the last Purple One or Strawberry Delight has become a beloved custom for families across the nation.

    “I am truly proud to see Quality Street emerge as the top choice among shoppers, both as a cherished gift and an integral part of the Christmas tradition. At Nestlé we are committed to preserving these cherished traditions while also recognising the need to prioritise sustainability.

     “We understand that consumers care deeply for the environment and want their beloved brands adapt to the evolving times. We’re so proud that every Quality Street chocolate in our assortment is now in recyclable paper, which our consumers can recycle through household recycling. As we continue to cherish the traditions that Quality Street represents, let us also aim to make a positive difference together.”

    This year marks Quality Street’s second Christmas with its new sustainable packaging, a move that removes almost two billion pieces of packaging material from the supply chain. The brand has successfully transitioned to paper wrap for 9 out of its 11 chocolates, with the Green Triangle or Chocolate Crunch remaining in recyclable foil.
