Producers of food packaging say they are seeing high demand from all areas. There is also high demand for folding cartons from the cigarette industry. The increased demand for folding cartons is resulting in strong interest in cartonboard. Delivery times for all grades are currently significantly longer than usual, according to EUWID market research.
