ANA introduces plastic-free meal trays

All Nippon Airways (ANA) will be introducing new plastic-free meal trays in August made from bagasse. 

Bagasse is a biodegradable waste fibre created from pressing sugarcane. Making the switch from plastic meal trays will reduce the amount of disposable plastic used by ANA for inflight services by about 30 per cent – an amount that was equal to 317 tons during 2019. 

The change is the latest development in a long line of sustainability initiatives as ANA works to meet the ambitious targets outlined in our 2050 sustainability goals.
