Expensive paper because of Brexit

BB160705 BrexitBritish printers are faced with a hefty rise in paper prices which could well run into the double digits. The reason is the fact that the British pound fell by 14% against the Euro.  Most of the paper for the British print industry comes from mainland Europe. All eyes are trained on UPM the biggest paper supplier. If they raise prices the rest of the industry will follow. This would result in a disaster, according to one of the suppliers.
There are however positive views in the UK as well who think that Brexit will eventually have a positive effect; if Brexit happens the Brits can buy paper worldwide (at lower cost) because the paper manufacturers do not have to pay by European import tariffs.
