This year, NutriAsia carries on with its vision of a more environmentally sustainable world through a project called “Bring Your Own Bottle” (BYOB), which encourages users to bring their own reusable bottles and refill their favorite condiments, and products like Datu Puti Vinegar, Datu Puti Soy Sauce, UFC Banana Catsup, and Golden Feista Cooking Oil. This simple act is expected to raise awareness on responsible plastic use and help build a zero-waste community as a stepping stone to sustainability.
You can participate by bringing your own empty and clean bottle for refilling. These can also be used bottles of UFC Banana Catsup, Golden Fiesta Cooking Oil, Datu Puti Vinegar and Datu Puti Soy Sauce.
