Ahlstrom Announces Higher Prices for Vegetable Parchment Materials

Ahlstrom, Finland, has announced price increases on vegetable parchment materials produced by its Food and Medical business area. The company notes that the price increases are being implemented to compensate for the continued high level of raw material costs as well as energy related inflation.

The price increases will affect all vegetable parchment products worldwide and will be effective for all orders placed as of August 1. The increase will be up to 5%, depending on markets as well as the product and the agreements in place.

Ahlstrom's vegetable parchment products include food packaging materials for cooking, baking, and wrapping. The Food and Medical business area's main end-use applications are teabags, coffee filters, food packaging, baking papers, masking tape, and surgical gowns and drapes.
