Two pulp producers unexpectedly announced higher pulp prices for 1 January, 2014.
The leading South American supplier of eucalyptus pulp caused a stir last week when it announced price increases effective from 1 January 2014. This would signify a mark-up for buyers in Europe depending on the initial price level.
A Spanish manufacturer followed suit later on in the week. On the grounds of having ultimately in December achieved an increase announced in October, the price is to go up again in January.
