Christmas/New Year Moratorium 2019

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 25th November 2019 until Sunday 2nd February 2020

The latest date to confirm any pricing adjustments for 2019 is Friday 4th October 2019, allowing 6 weeks lead time for implementation (last effective date for list price changes is Monday 18th November 2019).

The first effective date following the moratorium is Monday 3rd February 2020.

New Product Introductions: Monday 2nd December 2019 until Sunday 12th January 2020 

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 13th January 2020.

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