Price increase 2019
Dear valued Alfa Chicks customer.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued and loyal support. I also congratulate the many small and developing farmers who despite economic and political challenges continue to thrive in their respective markets.
As you are aware our economy continues to be bombarded by events that are beyond our control and which put pressure on our costs. Continued drought in feed producing regions, escalating diesel and electricity costs coupled with load shedding and irregular and insufficient electricity supply, the increase in the minimum wage and ongoing Union action amongst other factors leaves us with no alternative other than to increase our prices. It is no longer financially viable for us to absorb these price increases and hence we will be having a 2.8% average price increase on our day old chicks. Our transport prices will however remain unchanged for now and we will continue to absorb the increases related to the transport of our day old chicks for as long as we can.
The increase will be effective on all new and existing orders falling on or after the 4th of March 2019.
