April 20, 2017 - Sappi Europe has announced prices increases for all Packaging and Specialty Papers with effect as of June 1, 2017.

The price rise will apply to all European and Overseas markets.

In a press release, Sappi said, “The sudden and continuing sharp rise in input costs, particularly pulp and latex, make corrective pricing measures inevitable.

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