How have changes made to the physical infrastructure impacted upon production, such as reduced utility consumption, reduced wastage/waste treatment and improved process control.
The unit has been designed and engineered so the header card is perforated (notched) into the back panel of the main display unit. Therefore, this component does not need to be produced separately or laid up with an additional component that would typically add an increased sheet size and unnecessar....
[More]

How has the supply chain included in the process driven environmental efficiencies?
These display unit components are backhauled via PepsiCo’s transport from our production site. Each of the components are palletised separately, and the main efficiencies are: •Fewer pallets to collect, as historically header cards would have been palletised as separate components •The capacity to s....
[More]

The role that installation and fulfilment played in reducing the environmental impact and how changes in practices were employed.
A change of process was required by fulfilment to accommodate the revised tray style. We had to alter the trays that house the product so it would be sufficiently retained once the header card was removed from the back panel in-store and added to the display. A change was also required by the retail....

Entry Title Mondelez EasyRep FSDU
Category SU. Sustainability
Company Name Smurfit Kappa Display UK
Client Company Name Mondelez Europe Procurement GmbH-UK
Entry Number SU-003
Year Entered 2018
Practices employed in the design stage of the project that reduced the environmental impact of the display?
Our challenge was structural. We had a market-proven display solution with MiniAble, proven over six years with huge production volumes. However, year-on-year improvements in sustainability and cost reduction had taken this design to its performance limitations. Along with Mondelez, we were determin....
[More]

Materials used and how the production process helped reduce the environmental impact?
From the outset, we wanted to make the EasyRep from high-percentage recycled content which is also 100% recyclable. To achieve this, we used Mono material, which met both of these criteria. Large production volumes inevitably create large amounts of spent corrugated board for the retailers to handle....
[More]

How have changes made to the physical infrastructure impacted upon production, such as reduced utility consumption, reduced wastage/waste treatment and improved process control.
By reducing the number of components from 14 to just 5, we stripped out multiple set-ups and movements/touch points within our production facility. With our two-part joiner direct feeding our folder gluer machine, the EasyRep production process is substantially more efficient in both energy and wast....

How has the supply chain included in the process driven environmental efficiencies?
The integrated body design drove the component reduction, which in turn drives logistical and storage efficiencies. Compared to its predecessor, the material weight reduction was over 1kg per display and the lorry load efficiency was increased by 56 displays per lorry. Over the 24,000 displays, this....
[More]

The role that installation and fulfilment played in reducing the environmental impact and how changes in practices were employed.
As a prefilled display, the installation of the EasyRep is mostly fixed. A key driver for the EasyRep was the idea of reuse and replenishment on the shop floor, which has the potential to double or triple the amount of stock sold through one display. This extended lifecycle ethos is significantly mo....
