Kimberly-Clark to raise prices

March 22nd, 2011

DALLAS – Kimberly-Clark Corp. is notifying its retail customers that it plans to raise prices in North America within its baby and child care and consumer tissue businesses during the second and third quarters of this year.

According to the company, the increases are needed to offset inflationary pressure from higher raw material and energy costs.

The net selling prices in the U.S. and Canada for Huggies baby wipes and diapers, Pull-Ups training pants and Goodnites youth pants will increase an average of 3% to 7%. The increases will go into effect between June 19 and August 17. In addition, net selling prices in the U.S. for Cottonelle and Scott 1000 bathroom tissue will rise about 7% effective June 19. Price changes will vary by brand and pack size.
