Sonoco to Increase Price for Uncoated Recycled Paperboard

May 16, 2011 - Sonoco said that it would increase the price for all grades of uncoated recycled paperboard by $50 per ton and by 5 to 8 percent for tubes and cores, effective with shipments beginning June 6, 2011.

The price changes are necessary due to higher base raw materials, chemicals, repair materials and freight costs, Sonoco said.
