DUESSELDORF, Germany (Reuters) - German consumer goods group Henkel (HNKG_p.DE) will try to pass on rising raw material costs to its customers, Chief Financial Officer Carsten Knobel said on Thursday.

He said earlier he saw only a moderate increase in raw material costs this year, after Henkel reported 2013 financial results.
