Kimberly-Clark Corporation has announced that it is notifying customers in the US and Canada of plans to increase net selling prices across a majority of its North America consumer products businesses. The increases will be implemented through changes in list prices and package counts and are necessary to help offset significant commodity cost inflation.

The percentage increases are generally in the mid-to-high single digits on average and will mostly impact Cottonelle and Scott 1000 bathroom tissue, Kleenex facial tissue, Viva paper towels, Huggies diapers, Pull-Ups training pants and GoodNites youth pants. The increases on Cottonelle bathroom tissue and Viva paper towels will occur in the fourth quarter of 2018 while most of the remaining increases will occur in the first quarter of 2019.

Kimberly-Clark and its brands are an indispensable part of life for people in more than 175 countries. Its portfolio of brands, including Huggies, Kleenex, Scott, Kotex, Cottonelle, Poise, Depend, Andrex, Pull-Ups, GoodNites, Intimus, Neve, Plenitud, Viva and WypAll, hold the No. 1 or No. 2 share position in 80 countries. It uses sustainable practices that support a healthy planet, build stronger communities, and ensure its business thrives for decades to come.
