Why have some meal prices changed? 

While we’ve been able to maintain our pricing structure over time, the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic has seen the cost of goods and services increase, and is predicted to continue. 

So that we can continue to provide the highest quality and tastiest meals for all of our customers, effective Thursday, 7th of April 2022, some meal prices will increase.

This is mostly due to two factors: 

  1. Commodity price increases 

Over the past 12 months, market conditions have significantly impacted commodity pricing, in particular:

Red meat, which has increased 5-10%

Poultry, which has increased 15-20%

Produce, which has increased 20-40% 

Packaging, which has increased 16%

Forecasted conditions are predicted to escalate over the next 12 months, resulting in further increases to manufacturing and distribution costs. 

  1. COVID-19 impacts

COVID-19 has posed significant challenges and continues to have an impact on business, in particular: freight costs and supply chain reliability.

Supply Chain - implications at all levels of procurement has caused mounting pressure across production, labour and transportation

Freight – costs have increased 5-10% over the last 12 months resulting in material increases to our freight and general logistics.
