Foodstuffs List Price Adjustments

To successfully implement list price adjustments with Foodstuffs, this process requires the completion and email submission of a Foodstuffs Supplier List Price Adjustment Submission Form with key supporting documents (General Trade Price List & Letter of Justification) to price@foodstuffs.co.nz

As per the current process this covers changing the list price of existing products (not new product introductions/barcode changes/packaging configuration changes).

Prior to submitting your list price change proposal, it is important that it has been fully discussed and agreed with the relevant Foodstuffs North Island & Foodstuffs South Island stakeholders (Category Managers, etc.) 

 

Key Points of note:

  • • The template is to be used for all list price changes that will apply from 1 August 2016 and later.
    • This latest template servers as an "auto-load" template and mandatory fields have been shaded yellow to highlight the fields you must populate in order for your form to be processed.
    • It is vital these mandatory fields are accurate and no formulas are allowed in any of these highlighted mandatory fields.
    • All price adjustments must commence on a Monday, and there is a 6 week notification period (42 days).
    • The last price submitted has precedence and overwrites all future dates, this means that if you submit a price for the 03.12.2016, and then submit a price intended to run from 10.11.2016 until the 03.12.2016, the second price from November will overwrite the December price so there will only be a price from 10.11.2015 stored in the National PIM and sent to regions (overwriting the original message for the 03.12.2016).
    • If you wish to have 2 prices back to back like this, you must SUBMIT THEM IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER.
    • For documents that have been submitted and not completed correctly, the template will need to be corrected and re-submitted with a possible further 6 weeks notification required.
    • Should you require assistance with this form, you can contact either the Foodstuffs National Data Team or the FOBL Pricing Administrator (Esther Rua) on 09 621 0963.
 

Inclusions/Exclusions:

The following products are included in this list price change process:

  • • Vendor articles that have previously been submitted to Foodstuffs National PIM via GS1/ Product Flow or DEX.
    • Any article that is sold to Foodstuffs and its banner stores.
    • Regional priced articles are excluded.

About the SPA (Supplier Price Adjustment) Template:

  • • Vendor GLN/NZBN - Replacing the regional Vendor numbers to ensure a consistent national approach to vendor identification.
    • GS1 NPC / Product Flow Vendors must use their NZBN issued by the NZ government and listed in the Companies Office register.
    • Other vendors will use the NZBN issued by the NZ government and listed in the Companies Office register.
    • If you are not sure of your NZBN, contact the National Master Data Centre  to verify the correct details before submitting your form.
    • Vendors who do not have a NZBN will be assigned a GLN by Foodstuffs.
    • Where a vendor has regional pricing this number may change per region. Check with your regional master data team to confirm.
    • FS Article Number (FAN) is not a mandatory field.
    • The logic uses the GLN/NZBN, the Base Unit GTIN and the Case Qty to determine the correct relationship of the article changing.  These fields are therefore mandatory on all price change submissions.
    • If the FAN is populated it must be accurate, incorrect values in this field will not process (this includes mismatches between FAN and base GTIN).
    • Vendors of "non-standard" price changes (Tobacco, Newsprint, etc.) can add extra columns to the end of the sheet. Contact the National Data Team or FOBL for further information if this applies to you.
    • There are additional comprehensive supporting details in the second tab of the template as per current.
