Sealed Air Corporation announced price increases ranging from five to eight percent for the majority of its Food Care division’s North American products. The increases will be effective October 2, 2017. “Sealed Air has not had a price increase for Food Care products in North America since 2014, and we are working to minimize the cost adjustments and their impact on our customers,” said Karl R. Deily, President, Sealed Air Food Care; “However, notable increases in our input costs, including a 31% rise in the price of polyethylene since 2016, make changes to our prices necessary in order to continue to deliver the same level of value and innovation to our customers.” The price changes include a five percent increase on all shrink bags, rollstock products, food films and vertical pouch packaging, as well as a six percent increase on unpadded solid plastic trays and an eight percent increase on pre-padded solid plastic trays.
