DS Smith has said it will continue to use its ‘Circular Design Metrics’ which ensures that every new solution is evaluated for sustainability measures such as recyclability, material consumption to keeping material and products in use for longer.

Mondelez International which works with global brands such as Oreo, Cadbury Dairy Milk and Milka has signed a five-year agreement with UK based DS Smith to be the sole supplier of its corrugated packaging in Europe.


Cyril Goyet, VP of procurement for Europe at Mondelēz International said: “We are tremendously excited about our next venture with DS Smith and grateful for the collaborative journey that we have shared over the last ten years.

“The mutual trust we have built over time and the transparency and dedication exhibited by both teams has been the secret recipe of our success, enabling consistent value delivery and making our partnership unique and remarkable. In the end, it is about the great people in both companies sharing a same set up of values, passion, and commitment. Here is to another five years of success, growth, and achievement, as we explore new opportunities.”


The agreement builds upon an “already established relationship” between the two companies that has been in place for the last ten years.

Stefano Rossi, chief executive of DS Smith’s packaging division,  said: “We are delighted to continue this amazing journey with our hugely valued customer, Mondelēz International. This long-standing partnership is a testament to the strength of our shared vision together.”

“We are uniquely focussed on redefining packaging for a changing world and in creating lasting packaging innovations across all areas of our customer’s business. We are inherently proud of what we have achieved so far within the last ten years, and we look forward to working together successfully into the next decade and creating yet more lasting change.”
