Foodstuffs price/product moratoriums

The deadlines for Foodstuffs’ proposed peak season list price/new product moratorium are fast approaching: the list price adjustments moratorium is from 20 November - 28 January, while the new product moratorium is from 27 November – 7 January.

Foodstuffs asks that list price changes and product launches be planned to occur outside the moratorium periods, and confirms that the price moratorium doesn’t apply to the normal mutually agreed promotional pricing.

The last effective date for list price changes is 13 November, while the last effective date for new product changes is 20 November.

Suppliers needing further clarification are advised to talk to the relevant category manager. If suppliers do launch new products during the proposed moratorium period, they need to approach individual Foodstuffs businesses for special review and consideration.
