Sappi Europe announces Price increase for Packaging and Speciality grades as of 1st June 2017

The sudden and continuing sharp rise in input costs, particularly pulp and latex, make corrective pricing measures inevitable. Therefore Sappi Europe announces prices increases for all Packaging and Specialty Papers with effect as of June 1st, 2017. 
The increase will be in the range of 5 – 8% and will affect all Coated and Uncoated Grades for Flexible Packaging, Siliconising Base Papers, Label Papers and Topliner. The price rise will apply to all European and Overseas markets.

The final implementation will be discussed short term on an individual basis with customers in all countries, respecting existing agreements.
