Christmas/New Year Moratorium
Foodstuffs

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 20th November 2017 and run through until Sunday 28th January 2018 inclusive.

       This means the last effective date for changes is Monday 13th November 2017 and first effective date post the moratorium is Monday 29th January 2018.

-       The latest date to confirm any pricing adjustments for 2017 is Friday 30thSeptember 2017, 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 27thNovember 2017 and run through until Sunday 7th January 2018 inclusive.

-       This means the last effective date for listing is Monday 20th November 2017, and first effective date post the moratorium, Monday 8th January 2018.

-      We wish to highlight the need for you to take into consideration category team presentation and workflow lead times associated with new lines meaning presentations will need to be well prior to the moratorium taking effect.  For further clarification we request you seek counsel from your relevant category stakeholder.

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. 

 

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