Christmas/New Year Moratorium 2019
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
Introductions: Monday 2nd December 2019 until Sunday 12th January
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
