ATLANTA (News release) -- Graphic Packaging Holding Company, through its primary U.S. operating company, Graphic Packaging International, LLC., announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire the Consumer Packaging Group business from Greif, Inc. for approximately $85 million.

Graphic Packaging has also assessed the impact of recently announced RISI Pulp and Paper market price changes and its current expectations for commodity input cost inflation.
