Feldmuehle GmbH, manufacturer of label and flexible packaging papers, will increase prices for wet strength label paper qualities by 5% as of Jan 2020. The move is driven by a continued reduction of stock levels in conjunction with rising demand. The ecological measures on recycling have decreased the common uses of plastic based products in order to be substituted by paper-based options, less harmful for the environment.
Paper pulp’s based materials and uses are now even more diversified. Raw material costs of pulp, chemicals and other materials are still on high level. Energy and transportation cost are further increasing.
