Small 2016 Price Increase on Some Products
We pride ourselves on obtaining the best ingredients for our products and work hard to ensure that price increases on our products remain minimal. Unfortunately several key ingredients have risen this year and we’re unable to absorb all of the additional expenses that have been incurred. In efforts to be transparent with our customers, below are some of the reasons behind our price increases.
Most notably, chicken, turkey and egg prices have escalated, due in part of the effects (and ongoing threat) of avian influenza that have affected flocks across the country. We’ve also seen a considerable increase in the cost of some of our fish treats due to increased price of raw materials, a surge in Icelandic wages and other import expenses.
However, we were also able to obtain savings on our quinoa costs so our Limited Ingredient Chicken Recipe will not be affected. We will also be maintaining the costs for our two newest poultry diets released in the past year – Revel (whole grain chicken dog food) and Marvel (limited ingredient turkey dog food).
Here is a list of the products that will see a small 2.5% price increase effective on April 4, 2016:
- Grain Free Chicken Recipe
- Grain Free Chicken Recipe (for cats)
- Grain Free Turkey Recipe
- Whole Grain Turkey Recipe
- Grain Free Turkey Recipe (for cats)
- Fruit & Veggie Base Mix
