Diaper prices expected to rise due to supply chain disruption
Since the start of the pandemic, the price of diapers has risen 8.7 percent, according to CNN.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Families will soon see higher prices in the check-out line for diapers due to a disruption in the supply chain.
Since the start of the pandemic, the price of diapers has risen 8.7 percent, according to a CNN report.
Kimberly-Clark, the maker of Huggies and Pull-Ups announced plans to raise prices again in September. Procter & Gamble, the maker of Pampers and Luvs said it will increase diaper prices by June.
The price increase comes amid shipping and transportation delays and supply chain disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
