Christmas/New Year Moratorium

As per normal with peak season planning well underway we wish to seek your customary support with our proposed List Price/New Product Moratorium. 

We request your assistance in planning your list price changes and product 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: Monday 26th November 2018 until Sunday 3rd February 2019

The latest date to confirm any pricing adjustments for 20187 is Friday 5th October 2018, allowing 6 weeks lead time for implementation (last effective date for list price changes is Monday 19th November 2018).

The first effective date following the moratorium is Monday 4th February 2019.

New Product Introductions: Monday 3rd December 2018 until Sunday 13th January 2019 

We request that you present/discuss any new products during September or early October (at the latest) to align with current business requirements and to minimise any issues during this busy period.

If any 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.

The first effective date following the moratorium is Monday 14th January 2019.

As always, your partnership support is greatly appreciated and we wish you good luck and great trading over the peak Christmas trading period!
