The Nestlé Collect Story

The Nestle Group has been operating in Malta since around 1900. Founded and operated for many years in Cottonera, a subsidiary company, Nestle Milk Co Ltd, which was launched in 1923. The latter operated from Valletta. In 2007, the company moved to modern offices in Lija where they still operate till today. The scheme encourages consumer loyalty whilst embracing the collection of Nestlé packaging from consumers. This is a great inititiave by Nestlé as it rewards consumers for recycling as it is a way to facilitate the collection of Nestlé packaging.

How does Nestle Collect work?

The Nestlé collect scheme is about collecting the empty packaging of a wide range of consumed Nestlé products. These need to then be taken to the Nestlé consumer centre where they will be exchanged to Nestlé collect points. Once you reach specific thresholds of collect points, they can be redeemed for rewards such as vouchers, charity donations or specific household items.

You may visit the Nestlé Consumer Centre, Pantar Road, Lija during the following opening hours:

Monday to Thursdays from 8am till 3pm

Fridays and Saturdays from 9am to 12pm

Products in the Nestle Collect

As mentioned above, a wide range of Nestle products participate in the Nestle Collect scheme. These vary from coffee brands such Nescafé, including the Dolce Gusto range, That said, it seems that not all Nestle products that are available in Malta participate in this scheme. To be more specific, an example of nestle products that don’t seem to participate in the scheme are various Perugina products such as the Perugina Dessert Milk range. Nestle Collect provides the full list of exchangeable products. This may be found on their website within the collectables page.

Our Opinion

Whilst the Nestle Collect scheme is not the most advantageous reward program on the island but we are behind its mission. It is still a way of rewarding loyal consumers for using products they would still be purchasing. On a positive note, points you get can be exchanged for vouchers which gives a certain level of flexibility on how to make use of them. On a less positive note, it may take you quite some time to accumulate enough points that can be exchanged for a gift.
