Packaging and raw materials producer Smurfit Kappa’s roots are in Dublin, where the headquarters remain, from when a box-maker initially incorporated his firm in 1934, calling it Smurfit-Stone Container Corporation. It was quickly sold to Jefferson Smurfit and, just three decades later, listed on the Irish Stock Exchange. It was renamed in 2002 during a merger.
Smurfit Kappa currently employs 45,000 people in 35 countries in Europe, North America and South America. It is also a leader in sustainable solutions for the industry, receiving five awards in 2020 at the Nestle Supplier Awards, including “Best Sustainable Supplier”. These awards acknowledge the initiative taken by Smurfit Kappa to reduce its carbon footprint with creative packaging solutions.
