Pulp manufacturer Södra has raised the price of its softwood pulp to US$ 890 in Europe.

The increase took effect as of 1 May.

In a statement, the company said: “The market balance has been improved during the first quarter 2013, which has resulted in lower global market pulp stock levels for softwood pulp.”

The company declined to comment further at this time.
