New Prices as from 1st July 2010
As we reported in the last Newsletter, the recently announced Price Increases are now being implemented with effect for all deliveries from 1st July 2010.
The level of increases for mainstream chocolate from Barry Callebaut and Belcolade are thankfully not as significant as first thought, the headline increases being for:-
Plain and Extra Bitter Chocolate – increases of 4-7%
Cocoa Powder - increases of 20%
Chocolate El Rey- annual price review so the increase covers the last 12 months of Cocoa Inflation
OBVIOUSLY WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND THAT YOU PLAN TO BRING FORWARD JULY and AUGUST ORDERS INTO JUNE, ALSO CONSIDER BUILDING STOCKS. ORDERS NEED TO HAVE BEEN DELIVERED AND THEREFORE INVOICED BY THE JUNE MONTH END
Please talk to our Customer Service Team on 0844 32 44 499 who will always be keen to work with you to ensure you benefit as far as possible from current prices – but please remember we have the deadline on Wednesday 30th June!!
