Recycling project for medical nutrition packaging



In October 2020, the NHS outlined its vision to deliver the world’s first net zero health service in response to the climate emergency.

Increasing recycling is a simple task that can make a positive contribution to reducing carbon emissions and conserving natural resources by reducing demand for raw materials.

During 2021/22 Nutricia worked in partnership with The Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to implement a project to increase the recycling of medical nutrition packaging. 

It’s hoped the following support materials will inspire others to implement similar projects across hospital, community, and home settings.


Nutricia offers access to a wide range of support services and resources including:

  • • Our free Sampling Service to order product samples and have them sent to your patients' homes.
  • • A range of CPD accredited e-learning programmes.
  • • Order free paper copies of our support tools for yourself or to use with your patients.
  • • Sign up to receiving marketing communications and be the first to know about our free educational events & webinars, the latest scientific research and product updates.
