2015 Christmas/New Year Moratorium
Foodstuffs

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

Our price adjustment moratorium will commence on Monday 23rd November 2015 and run through until Sunday 31st January 2016 inclusive.

  • This means the last effective date for changes is Monday 16th November 2015 and first effective date post the moratorium is Monday 1st February 2016.
  • The latest date to confirm any pricing adjustments for 2015 is Friday 2nd October 2015, allowing the standard 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 30th November 2015 and run through until Sunday 10th January 2016 inclusive.

  • This means the last effective date for listing is Monday 23rd November 2015, and first effective date post the moratorium, Monday 11th January 2016.

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 so far this year has been greatly appreciated and we wish you good luck and great trading over the peak Christmas trading period!
