Rounding out price increases that were partly instituted one month earlier was on the agenda for brown recycled corrugated case material manufacturers in October. Most prices already edged €30/t higher in September. Producers had planned to tack on another €20 to bring the total mark-ups to the originally envisaged sum of €50. Yet, it can be assumed that no additional price hikes have occurred, at least for October deliveries. Implementation was meeting with staunch opposition from buyers. Paper manufacturers and buyers alike confirmed that the second instalment had failed to come to fruition, at least for now.
