Smurfit Kappa plans to increase containerboard prices by 60 euro per tonne across all European markets with effect from 15 January 2018.

The increase will apply to all containerboard grades: brown, white, and coated kraftliner as well as brown and white recycled containerboard.

The increase is driven by very tight European containerboard markets and necessary due to input cost increases and a volatile recovered fibre outlook, informs the company.

Earlier this month DS Smith announced a similar increase for recycled containerboard grades.
