To our valued customers,

Welcome to 2023! Cabot wishes all of our customers a happy, healthy, and promising New Year! There has been a slow down in the number of price increases, which is fantastic. Currently, the main influence on prices is the poor U.S. exchange rate. This means we are still seeing cost increases on products coming from the U.S., or purchased in U.S. dollars.

Please note:

  • The order presented is from future (top) to past (bottom).
  • New increases since our last letter are in orange.
  • Decreases are in green.
  • Updates before August 1, 2022 have been removed.
