Södra has increased the price of its softwood pulp to US$ 880 per tonne.

The hike took effect in Europe from 1 September 2013.

In a statement, the pulp giant said: “The market balance for softwood pulp is good and has been so over the summer.

“Södra expects the market balance to improve even further during the autumn.”

The company declined to comment further at this time.
