– While some producers were able to invoice a €10/tonne (US$13.55) price hike on unbleached kraftliner in Poland as of mid-April, the attempt failed overall, according to sources, reported Euwid on June 10.
Any linerboard prices that were increased in Poland were not expected to hold beyond May in the current market situation, and some manufacturers have not joined the attempt, one observer told Euwid.
Converters are rejecting the increases, following the previous round of hikes in Poland. Some of those who succeed with new price levels for the time being, had them wiped out by credits, Euwid reported.
