What we do


Smurfit Kappa is a FTSE 100 company and one of the leading providers of paper-based packaging in the world, with operations in 22 European countries, 13 countries in the Americas, and 1 country in Africa.

Our experience and expertise create new opportunities for our customers and we are constantly updating our pack design and innovations to provide the optimum choice and packaging supplies.

Almost all of the raw materials are sourced from our own paper mills, so consistency is always a key attribute of our products. Because those products are 100% renewable and produced sustainably, we help our customers reduce their environmental footprint.



We manufacture a wide range of papers mainly used for packaging purposes. Our total global paper and board capacity is approximately 8.3 million tonnes per annum.
