The British cartonboard market:
Demand for GD slow for seasonal reasons

31 Jul 2017 − 

Demand for GD cartonboard remained cool in July in the UK after a slowdown at the start of June.

However, this was what typically happened over the summer, sources told EUWID. All told, the amounts sold are frequently the same as or a little lower than last year.

Prices stayed largely the same in July. Nonetheless, they rose slightly in contracts with exchange rate clauses from 1 July due to the somewhat weaker pound Sterling against the euro.
