“This price increase, our first in more than a year, is necessary due to the recent increase in costs for uncoated recycled paperboard, our primary raw material, combined with price escalations in energy, labor and other input costs,” said James Harrell, vice president for Sonoco’s North America Tubes and Cores Division.
