Smurfit Kappa receives top innovation award from Kellogg’s in the Americas

10 June 2019

Smurfit Kappa has been awarded the ‘Transforming Innovation’ award from Kellogg's, in the Americas.

The award was recognition for a recent project in which Smurfit Kappa redesigned the cereal giant’s packaging to optimise its supply chain. The Smurfit Kappa team worked closely with Kellogg’s to identify a sustainable and innovative packaging solution requiring fewer cases during transportation.

Smurfit Kappa and Kellogg’s have been working together for over 20 years. “Smurfit Kappa is more than just a supplier, it is a business partner,” said Hector Gonzalez, packaging procurement manager at Kellogg’s.

Speaking about receiving the award, Marcela Liscano, vice-president of Smurfit Kappa Pan American Sales, said: “We are honoured and happy to receive this award. Besides having shared values as companies, our great team work has led us to create truly innovative packaging solutions for Kellogg’s that contribute to growth in their markets.”

Smurfit Kappa’s operations in the Americas provide packaging solutions for a variety of cereals, bars and snacks in the Kellogg’s portfolio.

The Kellogg’s Supplier Awards recognise companies from Canada through to Brazil for their effort and dedication to helping them achieve their vision of enriching and delighting the world through the foods and brands that matter.
