“Exceptionally high” freight and logistics costs are the reason for the price changes

These price changes will be applied to all its products globally and the company cites the move as necessary to offset the ongoing “exceptionally high” freight and logistics costs.

Marcos Furrer, chief operating officer at Archroma, comments: “Archroma has made every effort to absorb these increases.

“We have however reached a point where these adjustments are needed for us to be able to maintain our service levels.”
