Europe , February 22, 2022 (press release) –

Sappi Europe informs customers of further unavoidable price adjustments to its Speciality Paper grades due to the continued and unprecedented high level of raw material, chemical and logistics costs in combination with highly volatile and unpredictable energy prices.

Therefore, further price increases for all Coated and Uncoated Flexible Packaging, Label and Silicone Base Papers will be applied for shipments as of 1 March 2022.

Sappi’s European sales team will be in further contact directly with customers to discuss the details of the implementation, taking into account individual existing agreements.

Sappi understands that circumstances are extremely difficult and remains committed to managing its business effectively, supporting the industry and serving its customers.
