(News from RISI) – Japan’s Daio Paper has announced a price hike for its tissue range, effective on deliveries from 21 January.

The firm has put the hike at a minimum of 10%. It cited increased material costs consequent to the huge decline of the yen against the dollar as the main driver of the hike.

Like most other leading Japanese papermakers, Daio has also announced a 10% hike on its graphic paper range, though that one is scheduled on deliveries from 1 February.
