DS Smith Collaborates with Mondelez to Launch Circular Packaging Solutions

SEATTLE (Scrap Monster): DS Smith announced that it has partnered with the multinational snack food company Mondelez in a five-week long Circular Economy Innovation Sprint, along with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation (EMF).

During the five weeks, DS Smith and Mondelez worked together to identify opportunities to create customisable circular packaging solutions for Mondelēz’s co-packaging operation. The initiative applied the EMF’s circular economy principles. The entire process focused on three core principles of the circular economy model- reduce, reuse and recycle.
