Lecta announces a price increase of 12% to 14% on all its Specialty papers grades.

This price increase is essential in order to offset the exceptional increase in raw materials driven by the soaring price of gas, energy and chemical costs.

The new prices for Thermal, Carbonless, Labels and Flexible Packaging papers will be effective on deliveries from new orders and applied in all markets.

These new quotations will be subject to the addition of surcharges due to the uncontrollable and unforeseeable increasing prices of gas and energy cost.

In the current scenario of constant review of prices by our energy suppliers, Lecta's cost structure has suffered a significant downturn which is not sustainable without the relevant passing-on of these increases into the prices of our products by adding surcharges.

These surcharges will be subject to review each month in accordance with the relevant energy prices of the immediately prior month.

Lecta sales teams are at our customers' disposal to coordinate the price increase implementation.

Creator: Paper for Charity Calendars<p style="text-align:left;">​​​</p><p style="text-align:left;">Spanish charities Fundación Talita and Icària Iniciatives Socials select Lecta's papers for their calendars.</p><p style="text-align:left;">In keeping with its mission and values of social responsibility, Torraspapel, part of the <strong>Lecta Group</strong>, participates on a yearly basis in a number of charitable endeavors.

Its aim is to increase awareness of diversity and respect towards those who are different. The calendar, printed on PEFC-certified <strong>CreatorSilk</strong> 150 grs and <strong>CreatorVol</strong>100 grs, seeks to help change the way people view disability with its portraits of those highly sensitive members of our society who depend on a positive, constructive attitude from others in order to best develop their abilities.</p><p style="text-align:left;">Furthermore, each year the organization <a href=""><strong>Icària Iniciatives Socials</strong></a>, which also aims to promote the integration of disabled persons, publishes the the InOut hostel and restaurant calendar. InOut is the first European tourist complex of its kind, where more than 90% of the staff have some kind of mental disability.
