Redefining packaging for a changing world

DS Smith works in partnership with packaging users across the globe developing innovative packaging solutions that ensure our customers' products achieve more for less.

Our purpose in Packaging

Develop the right strategies

We don’t have a product catalogue. Our Impact and PackRight centres help customers see what’s possible to meet their challenge.

Think differently

Our starting point is always the end benefit of what we do, rather than the product we create. We focus on increasing sales, reducing costs and minimising risks.

Innovate together

We are responding to the changing needs of our customers through digital printing and our Made2Fit technology.

Put sustainability at the heart

Our 14 day box-to-box model is a journey from the box, to the retailer, to recycling to production.

Supply Cycle Strategists

Not only do we help specify corrugated packaging solutions to generate more sales, but do so while ensuring lower cost and manage risk resulting in a step change in our customers performance.

DS Smith’s comprehensive product range encompasses retail ready packaging, transit cases, consumer boxes, corrugated packs printed for gift and POS applications, and heavy duty industrial products

We complete our offering  with consultancy services on supply chain audit, creative design, picking operations (KAYPAL®) and local service offering close to our customers.

European network

Our European network of manufacturing plants service thousands of customers, producing more than ten billion boxes a year. Thanks to the combined operations of DS Smith's business divisions, we are a leading force in high performance recycled packaging, boasting:
