Nestlé looking for team to reduce tea waste

KARACHI (PR): Nestlé’s open innovation platform, and Nestlé Everyday the biggest tea creamer in Pakistan, are looking for partners to reduce tea waste and increase agricultural yields by creating an environmentally friendly, economical and natural fertiliser for Pakistani farmers.

100 billion cups of tea are consumed every year in Pakistan alone, producing approximately 200,000 tonnes of used tea leaves. Tea leaves contain nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium: the three major nutrients that qualify any compost as a quality fertiliser. Together, these nutrients improve soil quality – maintain moisture and increase oxygen levels.

With this in mind, Nestlé Everyday is looking for partners – whether start-ups, innovators, waste management companies, or other corporate partners – to harness the potential of used tea leaves and create a potentially game-changing product.
