Dear Valued Customer,
From the team at Daily Fresh Food Service, we hope you are safe and well within the current COVID environment.
Please be advised of multiple price changes effective from the 1st September 2021 & 11 October 2021. These increases are a direct result of prolonged pressure on shipping container costs due to a global shortage of freight equipment – both vessels and containers along with an increased global demand for goods.
The added pressure for vessels and shipping containers have inflated costs substantially, affecting most of our supply partners. On average, container costs last year were US$800 – $1,250 and have escalated to US$6,000+ (AUD $16,000).
We have received notification from multiple suppliers that pricing on product lines will vary depending on their origin. We have worked towards absorbing the increase as much as possible; however, we anticipate your overall average pantry basket pricing will increase as a direct result.
If you have any questions regarding the situation, please feel free to contact your account manager.
We thank you for your understanding and ongoing support as a business.
The Team at Daily Fresh Food Service
