Producers are trying to increase unbleached kraftliner prices by another €20/t for deliveries as of 1 September.
Price hikes for unbleached kraftliner seem to be not entirely off the table after all in August. A variety of market players are reporting that talks are continuing with manufacturers trying to push through another mark-up with effect from 1 September.
One reason for the negotiations continuing was the first renewed announcements of additional price increases for recycled corrugated case material with effect from 1 September. At the same time, unbleached kraftliner remains in demand, supporting the plans for a second €20/t installment, producers noted.
