Particularly the ever increasing pulp costs but also other rising raw material prices force Sappi to increase its Specialities and Packaging Papers prices as from 1 April 2018. This measure is necessary to mitigate continuing margin erosion.
The increase will be 6% for all uncoated grades and 4% for all coated grades. The price rise will apply to all European and Overseas markets.
Practical implementation will be discussed by Sappi’s sales team with individual customers over the next weeks.
