    FTSE 100 packaging giant's anger over Venezuela seizure

    The boss of Smurfit Kappa (Frankfurt: SK3.F - news) , Europe's biggest maker of cardboard boxes, has spoken of his anger at the company's business in Venezuela being seized by the country's Marxist government. President Nicolas Maduro's regime took control of Smurfit Kappa's Venezuelan operations, which employed 1,600 people and which owned production plants in Caracas and paper mills and a recycling plant elsewhere in the country, in August last year. The move followed a campaign of harassment and intimidation by government officials and immediately had a knock-on effect as consumer goods giant Colgate-Palmolive, a customer of Smurfit Kappa, was forced to halt production of detergents and soap because it no longer had boxes in which to ship its products.

    Statement re TOPPsafe™

    Smurfit Kappa has invented a sustainable new alternative for the heavy wooden, chipboard and plastic boards that are used to protect palletised products during transport and storage. A team of Smurfit Kappa designers in its Hexacomb operations collaborated to identify a food-safe and innovative solution that would be suitable for a range of sectors including those which have stringent hygiene regulations.
