DS Smith, Smurfit Kappa Group and Saica have announced plans to increase prices for recycled containerboard grades in Europe.
On Monday 26 June, Smurfit Kappa announced a 50€/t price increase for brown recycled containerboard for all European markets to reflect rising input costs and continued demand strength. According to the announcement the increase will take effect from 3 July.
A few days ago recycled containerboard manufacturer Saica also announced an increase for recycled containerboard.
Earlier in June, UK group DS Smith informed customers of its plans to charge €50/t more for recycled containerboard from 1 July 2017.
