Due to continuing high cost and volatility in raw materials, energy and transportation Sappi Europe will increase its prices to its European customers by 8-10% on its range of Woodfree Coated and Uncoated papers, and Paperboard from 12 September.
This is in addition to previously communicated increases.
The cost outlook remains uncertain and Sappi will continue to adjust pricing if costs escalate further.
Sappi’s European sales team will be in further contact directly with customers to discuss the details of the implementation.
