When the earthquake/tsunami hit Japan back in early 2011 it shocked everyone into realizing the importance of being prepared. Food storage and related preparedness items were in high demand and experienced huge backorders. This was very frustrating for people at a time when they were feeling anxious about getting ready for future disasters.
Hurricane Sandy in combination with droughts and higher food prices this year could cause a similar situation to arise in the near future. We are already seeing price increases among some suppliers and a few products on backorder. We wanted to let you know about a few upcoming price increases as well as some holiday promotions that would be ideal to take advantage of now before supplies become limited. We’ll add to this list as we hear about any other things on the horizon.
PRICE CHANGES COMING NOVEMBER 1ST
Wise Food Storage
Across the board price increases coming November 1st.
Over the past 12 -18 months, Wise Company has absorbed significant price increases from our food suppliers without passing along any of the increased costs to our customers. As widely reported, drought conditions throughout the US, increased fuel prices and government regulation have all combined to increase the costs of critical raw materials such as corn, wheat, dairy and beef. We hoped the upward food price trends would reverse itself but, unfortunately, it has not. Although we have never instituted a price increase in our history, these unprecedented conditions have made it necessary to make certain modifications to our pricing program. We are committed to instituting these changes in a thoughtful, measured and careful manner.
