Nestlé Professional Cost Price Increase

Nestlé Professional will be increasing cost prices on its Beverage, Food, Dairy and Baked Dessert Ingredients portfolio. These changes are necessary due to the significant increase in input costs which have affected our products and our ongoing commitment to invest in our brands in these categories.
All of these cost price changes will be effective on deliveries dispatched after 12:01 a.m. on 4th October 2021.
Please find enclosed the revised Nestlé Professional cost price list which is effective from this date. Your company remains free to determine its resale prices.
Thank you for your continued support of Nestlé Professional.
Price increases range from 4% to 8% on the vast majority of lines.
Pricing will increase from NWT on orders placed commencing 1st October.


We will be implementing a cost price increase across some of our brands/Skus on November 1st 2021. This decision has been made by the business due to several contributing factors;

• Global Shipping costs – over the last 12 months we have absorbed significant costs for shipping across container pricing and transportation.

• Raw Materials – we are taking increases on all raw materials in some case as much as 69% on certain ingredients

• Packaging materials – we have also been subject to increases up to 41% on some of the materials we use.

All of the increases have been absorbed over the last 12 months, however we will now implementing these changes which will be updated in our systems to go live from November 1st 2021.


You will be aware of inflationary pressures across the food industry. This has led to significant increases in our raw materials and packaging for the products and brands we represent. Whilst we have worked extremely hard over the past few months to mitigate as many of these increases as possible, it has now gone beyond the point whereby we can absorb such increases any longer. Consequently we have no alternative other than to increase the price of some specific product lines.

The changes are detailed on the attached schedule and these will become effective on all deliveries made from 27/09/2021.

These increases are a direct result of the exceptional commodity and cost inflation that we are experiencing, as highlighted in the accompanying graphs. I trust that you will understand that we have no alternative course of action and acknowledge that we have kept the necessary increases to an absolute minimum.


I am writing to inform you of price changes across a number of products supplied by Butcher's Pet Care which will come into effect on all orders from Monday 13th September. Over the past year we have all seen significant inflation across raw materials, packaging and operating costs.
In recent months this has accelerated to levels not seen for many years. As a responsible supplier, we have made every effort to mitigate these costs and avoid passing these on to our customers but with these sustained inflationary pressures we have reached the point where we are no longer able to absorb these higher costs.
As a result, please be advised that Butchers Pet Care will be applying increased cost prices of +7.5% across all our Can (Cat & Dog) & Alu Tray ranges. A copy of the detail has been enclosed.


Regrettably, we are unable to further absorb price increases of this order and we have no alternative but to impose a price rise of 10% from the 1st September 2021 on the following Hedgehog branded products:

  • Hedgehog Easy Air Wedge
  • Hedgehog Gutter Clip


Cost Price changes

The Lavazza Group constantly assesses its operational and manufacturing costs to ensure we can continue to sustain the business and bring the finest quality coffee to market.

Due to significant increases in raw material and operational costs, Lavazza Coffee (UK) Ltd will be implementing a cost price increase across our Ground, Beans, Instant and Capsules products. The new cost prices will be effective on all orders from, 1ST September 2021.

Increases are being driven by global economic factors with the change to your cost prices due to the following reasons’,

• Green coffee prices have increased dramatically in the last 6 months for both Arabica and Robusta. Specialties and organic coffees have experienced even higher increases.

• Other raw material prices have increased due to demand and supply complications (e.g. oil, aluminium, cardboard and plastics).

• Freight rates have skyrocketed reaching new market highs.

Lavazza’s goal is to continue to offer the finest quality blends to our customers. Our blends deliver the best in-cup experience for our consumers by ensuring only superior quality raw materials.

16/6/2021 GB Confectionery PRICE INCREASES FROM 1st JULY

We have absorbed a high proportion of the raw material cost increases throughout the past 12mths but unfortunately, we are still not seeing any softening of raw material pricing but are in fact seeing the reverse happen most notably across cardboard and paper materials.

With no real end in sight to this I am afraid we are no longer able to absorb these additional increases and reluctantly need to raise our pricing accordingly. Effective from new orders placed for delivery after the 1st of July. This mean there will be a 2.5% increase on your current price.

16/6/2021 Janit-X Bin Bags PRICE INCREASES FROM 1st JULY

We have absorbed these as long as we can. But the impact this year is already well over £1m for us, and we cannot continue to swallow these sorts of additional costs. Our decision here was simple, either stop bringing product in whilst the price is so high, or carry on and have stock availability. We believe the second choice is the preferred option for our customers, and that is what we have done.
We don’t want to increase pricing, but you will be contacted to discuss new rates before the end of this month.
This in no way represents any increase in margin for us. In fact, it does not even begin to cover the full extent of the increases we have paid. But it will at least enable us to continue our current service to you.
We sincerely hope this situation eases back to “normal”. As soon as it does, we will of course be in touch to discuss pricing with you again.
We hope you understand, and thank you for your business with us.


This is to advise you of an ANOTHER upcoming price increase that will be implemented on 1st July 2021.
Due to escalating raw material, transportation, and other manufacturing costs, it is necessary to implement a price increase on all products as follows:
Increase Percentage +5%


Please note that there will be a Sea Kelp price increase effective 1st June 2021, with the attached your new confidential price list.
Sea Kelp has not had a price increase for several years, in spite of our costs having increased across the years, including further cost implications from global supply chain challenges during the pandemic.
Although there are price increases across products, I’m pleased to say that we’ve maintained current pricing on the 300ml pump bottles.
We have an environmentally-friendly range of FSC certified white boxed guest amenities and have included a small range of key COVID-19 products focusing on guest and staff health and safety, including disinfecting and sanitising products, gloves, masks and alcohol hand gel.
Thank you for your continued valued support of Sea Kelp.


As explained in the attached letter from our sales director, we have been forced to implement price increases across our Pukka Filing range. As you know, over the past year we have absorbed huge increases on materials and particularly freight and it has come to the stage where we cannot hold off these increases any longer. See attached the new prices which will come into effect immediately.


This is to advise you of an upcoming price increase that will be implemented on 1st June 2021.
Due to escalating raw material, transportation, and other manufacturing costs, it is necessary to implement a price increase on all products as follows:

Increase Percentage +8%


Over the last year we have seen milk and SMP, important ingredients in many of our products increase.
In addition to these dairy price increases we have also experienced increases in:
• Other important ingredients - Sugar, Veg Oils.
• Timber/Packaging
• Fuel/Energy
Throughout the recent challenging period caused by the pandemic and the on-going challenges that we all
face, we have tried our very best to absorb these increases but regrettably as from Tuesday 1st June 2021
we have no alternative but to increase our prices.


We are writing to advise you of a change in standard invoice price against some of the products in the Ferrero range, which you purchase from us, please see attached SKU detail.

The increase of the invoice prices for all Ferrero UK Limited customers will become effective from the 10th of May 2021.

This will be a minimum of 6% increase across the range.


As if Covid hasn’t been enough for us all to deal with during the last 12 months we now have to shift our focus onto BREXIT, global raw material shortages and months of negotiations with suppliers.

The last 10 months of 2020 in the lead up to BREXIT negotiations, we saw increasing volatility in the supply chain of raw materials and packaging
Raw materials have seen increases of between 3 and 5 fold. Cost of imports, increased administration and severely reduced availability are pushing prices up for raw materials globally.

With the onset of Biocidal Product Registrations and the complexity in regulating which raw materials can / cannot be used for production in disinfectants, and subsequent product registrations we’ve had to complete to comply with this legislation, we as a business have seen further significant cost implications.

We have tried to avoid passing on any price increases to our distributors where possible, and through internal initiatives have improved our purchasing and sourced new suppliers where possible. However, we have absorbed steady increases now for the last 10 months. Unfortunately we are at a point where the price escalations, BREXIT and further elements generated on a global scale, cannot be absorbed any further and we have no alternative but to introduce the following changes:

As of 10th May 2021 the pricing for all products will increase by 5%


Please find formal notification that Swizzels Matlow Ltd will be implementing a market wide cost price increase, effective Monday 31st May.

As a business, Swizzels have absorbed many additional costs over the last number of years, however continued increases in the price of raw materials, packaging, labour, utilities and distribution, mean that we cannot continue to do so and remain competitive.

These price increases range from between 12% and 25%. We will do our best to mitigate the price increases we pass on wherever possible.


I write to formally notify you of some staggered cost increase / SKU changes taking place relating to our portfolio of products.

These changes are driven by significant increases in costs being incurred by our business as we support our brands, innovate to add value to the tea category and others, invest in our infrastructure and critically to improve the CSR credentials of our ranges.

Our prices will increase across the portfolio of products supplied on all deliveries made from and including 1st May 2021 and will be a minimum of 3%

The above applies to all Tetley Products besides Tetley 440’s, Tetley 1100’s & Tetley 1540’s.

These products will be subject to a reduction in the drop weight of the Tetley polybag range (Product table below) will follow on or around the 1st June 2021. New Product detail such as pack codes and case weights will follow in due course and invoice pricing will remain unaffected on these lines.


Hozelock cannot continue to absorb all of these costs and we should increase our prices now by 25% to reflect their impact on our business.

However, we recognise that this would place our customers in a very difficult position, So we are gambling that raw material costs will return in the future to a more sustainable level, And are increasing our prices only by the absolute minimum required to be able to continue to supply.

Under the current exceptional Force Majeure circumstances, we have no choice but to increase our prices by 8% for all orders from Friday 9th April 2021


Since the outbreak of Covid and series of lockdowns, we have seen a huge increase in monthly demand across all products, which has exceeded our current monthly production capacity. We did think that this would start to get back to normal in the 4th quarter of 2020, however, this has just not been the case with demand still out-stripping production.

We have been working tirelessly to try and “fix” this shortfall in capacity and are well on the road to being able to not only meet this new level of demand, but also have room to expand further. As a result of a £10 million+ pound investment, we have purchased 14 new machines. Five of which are now adding to production, with a further nine machines due over the next two months. We have extended the production facility to a new building, having to also account for installation of extra power, extra cooling systems, more auto material feeding etc.; to be able to get these new machines on-line and producing as quickly as possible.

We apologise for the drop in our usual high level of service and supply and assure you we are doing everything to resolve these issues as quickly as possible and thank you for your continued support over the last 12 months.

Now that we are in a good place to be able to meet the new level of demand, we are now being hit with record high material prices and even more worrying, lack of raw material supplies. From November, material prices have increased rapidly (approx. 50% to date) with March alone being hit with an increase of €450 per tonne. We have been holding off price increases for as long as possible, but now have no alternative and will be looking at moving pricing by 10% from the 12th of April.

14/07/2020 Coronavirus Update - VAT

As part of the Governments initiative to get Hospitality sector back on its feet, the UK Government has implemented a temporary reduction on VAT due, down from 20% to 5% on selected products, starting tomorrow on 15/07/2020.

This is to be claimed back on a VAT return, based on the sale of these goods to consumers. This is not a reduction in the VAT charged to purchase of goods across our website.

Therefore the VAT on our prices for these products will remain unchanged.

Us at NWT FM Solutions welcome the Governments decision. Which is why we will be running promotions on certain lines we supply into these sectors, to hopefully do our part in getting many businesses up & running as soon as possible. Keep an eye out for our promotional emails!

For more information & guidance on which products this effects to can be found on the UK Government website. (Links Below)

13/04/2020 NWT FM Solutions Acquires a New Warehouse & Dropship Services

NWT FM Solutions is proud to announce the acquirement of a new warehouse near our current Huyton based warehouse.

The move will particularly benefit our distribution as it allows us to expand our range of products that would not have been possible before such as the recently added gardening range of planters and troughs. This is also especially beneficial through our 3rd party & dropship services, as it allows us to hold more stock more than ever before, allowing for a smoother and more streamlined service of distribution services. We believe that is the next big step to help our company expand even more and provide a better-quality service and a larger variety of products to our ever-growing customer base.

You may be asking yourself what is drop shipping?

Drop shipping is an order fulfilment method that does not require a business to keep products in stock. Instead, the store sells the product, and passes on the sales order to a third-party supplier (NWT FM Solutions), who then ships the order to the customer.

Over a million parcels have currently been shipped via our 3rd party service, with all deliveries are GPS tracked and signed. We can also send your customers invoice within the box.

04/06/19 7 Essential Tips For Making Great Coffee At Home Or Work

Mastering a few fundamentals to making good coffee can result in a much better flavour. The temperature of your water, brewing duration and the quality of the coffee itself can result in a much better brew. Here we look at making great coffee using beans. There are of course lots of choices and the right choice of beans is personal to you.

1. The most obvious – buy great quality coffee beans! Whole beans are the best. Never re-use beans after brewing.

2. Make sure you grind your coffee just before brewing.

3. Keep your coffee stored in an airtight container, away from direct sunlight. It’s not a good idea to freeze the beans, unless you are intending to use them after two weeks.

4. Use a good amount of coffee, and the right proportion of coffee to water. One to two tablespoons of ground coffee for every six ounces of water, or to be more specific for every 1 gram of coffee, use 17 grams of water.

5. Find the right grind size for your coffee beans and aim for a uniform grind. If your coffee is to bitter it may be that the grind is too fine.

6. Don’t use boiling water as this can sour the coffee. Control the temperature of your water. Somewhere between 195 and 202 degrees is adequate.

7. Use quality tools. Buy the right bean grinder and coffee maker. Make a good investment in your coffee drinking future and the results will be a great taste.

According to recent research approximately 86% of the UK’s full-time workers drink tea and coffee every day, for many people a regular caffeine boost helps increase endurance and performance throughout the working day, which can be a big plus for employers, and due to the recent rise of café culture and big brand high street coffee outlets many employees are more aware and will take time out to indulge and spend time in coffee shops. However, some employers are yet to recognise the benefits to a business of providing basic catering essentials to their workforce within their own premises.

According to more research, 75% of staff buy their coffee and tea out of office, resulting in an estimated 40 hours of lost office time per employee each year. Recent studies have shown that employees consider access to high quality coffee is an important workplace perk, proving that the company cares about its workers.

We now have a new Northern Field Sales Representative - Mark Williams. Mark has been with the company for many years so has a vast product knowledge.

Our offices now have a Wall Mural that showcases a unique journey through our variety of brands and products.

In May North West Teas bought a new fleet of vans that are now delivering stock to local customers.

By now you will also be aware that we are stocking a wide range of Workwear including gloves, boots, high vis jackets and vests, safety glasses, head and knee protectors, aprons, overalls and lots more. This new range is being constantly updated with new lines as of June this year. There's a world of choice to suit all sectors and areas of retail and industry including construction, catering, beauty, hospitality, automotive and engineering.

From  1st July 2018 we launched a new price file. If you’d like one sending over please don’t hesitate to contact one of the team. 


With the continued growth of NWT sending out 3rd party delivery orders, we have decided to make our website more compatible for ordering in Single Units. As of March 2018, you will notice significant changes to the way you order your Single Units. Instead of seeing case prices first, you will now see Single Units as the main focus, with prices for Cases a secondary option.

Fear not, all discounted prices for cases will remain the same. We will send out multiple reminders before the change so that you do not order the wrong quantities. We believe this will benefit all customers going forward, as there are considerable savings to be made using NWTs 3rd Party Direct Service.


NWT FM Solutions now has a new price list for January 2018. If you haven't got your then please let us know.


NWT Group has moved into a new 30,000 sq ft distribution centre.  “ We are pleased to announce the move into the newly acquired picking and distribution warehouse has been completed ahead of schedule. The move was carried out with the utmost professionalism with no downtime at all to any of our customer base. The new facility is within easy reach of our import centre and will speed up internal stock movements to help distribute more efficiently. The extra capacity will see new lines introduced over the coming months on all our selling formats and push the businesses onto greater success in the future. The move will particularly benefit our wholesale distribution customers as it will enable extra stock holding and a more streamlined 3rd party distribution” said Ryan Torrible, Business Development Manager.


NWT FM Solutions follows up its previous years growth with positive figures for the first half of 2017. The number of Orders processed in the period 1st January 207 to 30th June 2017 is up 25% when compared to the same time last year. This is the fastest growth experienced since 2012.

NWT has also had positive figures in Turnover with a 6 month growth of 15% in Turnover compared to 2016 figures, with June's figure up 49.3% against June 2016.


NWT FM Solutions announced the purchase of a new distribution facility of J6 M62 Liverpool. Group MD Tony Torrible said " This acquisition will move the groups business further ahead in range, storage & speed of delivery. Our customers are asking us for product storage facilities to complement the current range we deliver on their behalf which we will now be able to accommodate."

The new facility will give the group an extra 1000 pallet bays and will incorporate the current external import centre also based in Huyton. " Moving more of our distribution and storage under one roof will streamline our services to cope with growing demand on order processing and storage, it will also give NWT the space to develop into other areas of distribution. We currently process 26,000 orders per month with a 30% growth YOY. If we don't plan for the success of the group going forward we will stifle the great growth we have shown over the last 10 years. The facility should be up and fully operational within 12 months ".


As of 1st January 2017, we have been forced to implement an increase in our minimum order value for free delivery. With the amount of price rises as well as the vast increase in our product range NWT we feel this should still be relatively easy to achieve. All other orders below minimum will be charged at £6.99 (per 25kg parcel) and an economy service at £3.99. These competitive rates also apply to 3rd party delivery.
