Smurfit Kappa has been awarded its second prestigious supplier award in recent weeks from Nestlé, the world’s leading nutrition, health and wellness company. Smurfit Kappa was ranked the number one European Supplier of the Year for all-round excellence among Nestlé’s European corrugated packaging suppliers. This comes after it was recently awarded the Nestlé European Innovation Recognition Award for outstanding innovation proposals.

The Supplier of the Year Award is Nestlé’s most sought-after packaging supplier award across Europe. It measures excellence across six categories of innovation and renovation, quality, technical, relationships, cost and logistics. Suppliers are rated by individual market, with the overall award given for the best supplier across Europe.

The award is the culmination of a collaborative, strategic partnership between the two businesses, delivering measurable value across the Nestlé supply chain in multiple categories, from coffee to pet food.

Stephen Mc Aneny, VP Sales at Smurfit Kappa, says: “We are delighted to gain further recognition from Nestlé and in particular as its leading corrugated supplier across Europe. As part of embedding our new ‘Open the future’ strategy with all our clients, we have worked in complete partnership with Nestlé to deliver innovation at every step of the supply chain. So it’s particularly pleasing for our work to be recognised across all six categories, from innovation to logistics. We look forward to working with our clients at Nestlé to create new opportunities for the business and it brands in the year ahead.”

Smurfit Kappa is one of the leading providers of paper-based packaging solutions in the world, with around 43,000 employees in approximately 350 production sites across 33 countries and with revenue of €8.1 billion in 2014. It is located in 21 countries in Europe, and 12 in the Americas.
