Sonoco has announced it is to increase prices on all recycled paperboard grades in Europe.

The packaging giant said it will raise tariffs by €40 or £30 per metric ton on recycled paperboard grades on shipments on or after 14 September, 2009.

The company’s European vice president Eddie L Smith said the price rise was because of higher costs associated with recovered paper and energy, along with “significantly reduced inventories” of coreboard across Europe.
