September 5, 2018 – Kimberly-Clark Corporation recently announced a price increase on the majority of its consumer products sold in Canada and the U.S.

The adjustment is in response to commodity cost inflation, says the company.

The percentage increases are generally in the mid-to-high single digits on average and will mostly impact Cottonelle and Scott 1000 bathroom tissue, Kleenex facial tissue, Viva paper towels, Huggies diapers, Pull-Ups training pants and GoodNites youth pants. The increases on Cottonelle bathroom tissue and Viva paper towels will occur in the fourth quarter of 2018 while most of the remaining increases will occur in the first quarter of 2019.

Kimberly-Clark products are sold in more than 175 countries.
