Södra Cell has increased the price of its northern bleached softwood kraft pulp in Europe to $960/tonne.

The price hike came into effect on 1 October 2017.

Magnus Björkman, VP Marketing and Sales, said: “This increase reflects the fact that global NBSK demand continues to be very strong.

“Consequently, this is also putting further pressure on European supply.

“The economic situation in Europe is sound and our market remains firm.”
