The consequences of the war had a strong impact on energy supplies, but the side effects are also other: the packaging sector had to face a 20-50% increase in the price of paper and cardboard.
With these assumptions, the increase in production costs was about 25-30% with particular attention to the choice of materials for packaging.
Environmental sustainability was the first reason that led several companies to choose paper rather than plastic; consumers willingly accepted. For the past two to three months, however, the price of paper has risen by more than 40%. Paper mills delayed in some deliveries, and maximum supply quotas were set for individual customers and States.
Packaging manufacturers wonder how to get by with these price increases and sourcing difficulties.
