Earlier, The food and drink manufacturing monster Nestle, has announced plans to switch from the plastic packaging to paper on its chocolate and wafer brand KitKat.
Nestle pledged to go completely plastic-free with their chocolate-covered wafer bar by 2025.
It is a part of their aim that KitKat will be wrapped in paper instead of the traditional glossy red plastic.
The Japanese strand of the global KitKat brand has already announced its new paper packaging this September.
