Smurfit Kappa is to invest €54 million to double the capacity of its Ibi bag in box plant in Alicante, Spain.


The latest investment is set to strengthen the sustainability of both the plant’s operations and its product portfolio, with enhanced waste management systems and significant savings in energy consumption. Bag-in-Box Ibi has got a strong track record when it comes to recycling with several systems to identify and separate by-products.


Saverio Mayer, CEO of Smurfit Kappa Europe, said: ‘Today’s announcement demonstrates our commitment to the bag in box division and forms part of our multi-country expansion plan. We have invested €90 million in the Ibi plant throughout the last decade which has significantly enhanced our offering.


‘Our customers know that when they choose us, they will get everything they need for their product, invariably resulting in a beautifully designed bag in box with a reduced carbon footprint.’


Bag-in-Box Ibi creates a broad range of products for wine, dairy products, liquid eggs, cooking oils and water.
