FT: Toilet paper production in Germany threatened by energy prices

MOSCOW, September 23 – RIA Novosti. The newspaper writes that German toilet paper manufacturers had to raise prices and cut production due to high energy prices. Financial Times.

“Essity’s German factory in Mainz-Kostheim requires 700 kilowatt hours of natural gas to make one 2 million ‘original roll’ of toilet paper… Amid rising energy prices and fears of impending shortages, Essity has decided to raise prices and switch to other fuel sources. ,” the newspaper writes. According to the newspaper, the company is increasing the price of Lotus toilet paper and Libero diapers by 18%.

The publication states that Düsseldorf-based Hakle, one of Germany’s best-known toilet paper brands, has already filed for bankruptcy, citing high energy, material and transportation costs.

Industry representatives believe that it will not be easy for them, even if the government supports them. There is also concern that companies will be affected by energy rationing. “It may not be necessary to produce chocolate chip cookies, but it is necessary to produce toilet paper,” said Gregor Geiger, spokesman for Die Papierindustrie, the German pulp and paper industry association.

After the Russian Federation started its special operation in Ukraine, the West increased the pressure of sanctions against Russia. The disruption of supply chains has increased fuel and food prices in Europe and the US.

Earlier, Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev said that more than half of EU residents and in some countries two-thirds are not ready to support anti-Russian sanctions. According to him, various initiatives are being developed to punish “heavy Russia”, from saving money on burning bodies to washing toilet paper.
