Sappi Europe announces further price increases for its Packaging grades by 8-12%

Sappi Europe announces a price increase for all its Paperboard and Containerboard grades by 8 – 12% valid for deliveries from 1 September 2021.

The unprecedented and ongoing rise of raw material costs, particularly pulp, chemicals and energy in combination with extremely high freight rates makes price adjustments unavoidable. 

Sappi’s sales team will be in contact with customers to discuss the detail and support the implementation.
