The Navigator Company will increase the price of its tissue papers in Europe by 8 to 12%.

The hike will be effective as of 1 November and covers all products and markets.

It follows two previous price increases in January and July this year.

The company said the move was due to “the continuous increase in key raw materials costs, namely short and long fibre pulp, energy and chemicals which are generating an unsustainable pressure on all producers’ margin”.

The Navigator Company produces printing and copy paper and entered into the tissue market in 2015 with the acquisition of the AMS mill in Vila Velha de Ródão, Portugal, a 100% virgin tissue operation.
