Borregaard: Increasing pulpwood prices in Scandinavia

Wood prices continue to increase from the new level established at the beginning of the year. Borregaard's mid-year negotiations with suppliers of spruce pulpwood and woodchips to the biorefinery in Sarpsborg are practically finished. Borregaard's wood cost in the second half of 2018 will increase by about NOK 60 million on an annualised basis compared with the first half of the year.
