Christmas/New Year Moratorium

Dear trading partner, thank you for your support through the year in what has been another exciting and eventful year.

 

We once again seek your customary support with our proposed List Price/New Product Moratorium during our peak trading period.

We request your assistance in planning your list price changesandproduct launches to occur outside the moratorium periods and as usual, confirm the price moratorium does not apply to the normal mutually agreed promotional pricing.

For products implementing excise changes during the proposed moratorium period, special arrangements will be notified directly to the trading partners concerned. 

List Price Adjustments:

Our price adjustment moratorium will commence on Monday 21st November 2016 and run through until Sunday 29th January 2017 inclusive.

  • - This means the last effective date for changes is Monday 14th November 2016 and first effective date post the moratorium is Monday 30th January 2017.

  • - The latest date to confirm any pricing adjustments for 2016 is Friday 7th October 2016, allowing 6 weeks lead time for implementation prior to the moratorium period taking effect.

New Product Introductions:

The new product introduction moratorium will commence on Monday 28th November 2016 and run through until Sunday 8th January 2017 inclusive.

  • - This means the last effective date for listing is Monday 21st November 2016, and first effective date post the moratorium, Monday 9th January 2017.

 

If new products are launched to the market during the proposed moratorium period, we request you approach the individual Foodstuffs businesses for special review and consideration.

 

Your partnership support is greatly appreciated and we wish you good luck and great trading over the peak Christmas trading period!
