Smurfit Kappa´s ShelfSmart service leads to 10% sales increase


CATEGORY: Material innovations BRAND: Smurfit Kappa

Smurfit Kappa’s innovative ShelfSmart service helped Agua de Benassal, a premium bottled water company in Spain, increase sales by 10%. 

The company wanted to raise the impact of its products in-store so Smurfit Kappa analysed its current solution and recommended a change of design which led to the significant boost in sales.


The ShelfSmart service combines insights from over 50,000 shoppers across 28 product categories in 13 countries with industry-leading tools and knowledge. These elements work in tandem to enable producers and retailers to test the impact of new packaging designs on shoppers, ultimately allowing them to increase visibility and grow sales.


In addition, the ShelfSmart service uses an inventory of unique tools. One of these tools, the ShelfViewer tool, is a collection of over 100,000 on-the-shelf product images, giving brand owners a preview of today’s in-store landscape. Smurfit Kappa uses the insights and tools in a collaborative process with the customer to create packaging that can out-perform competitors by standing out on the shelf.
