We’re all excited for the new year and continue to hope for a turnaround for the American economy, but unfortunately the new year will also bring a new round of price adjustments for Flint River Ranch. The cost of high-quality, human-grade ingredients continues to skyrocket and it’s led to widespread increases in the cost of foods on our grocery store shelves and pet retail store shelves, with signs of more price increases to come for these food items and products.
Here at A+ Flint River Ranch and at Flint River Ranch headquarters we’ve done everything we can to streamline costs while never sacrificing the high quality of our foods or “downsizing” the size of our bags in order to deceive customers about increased costs.
We’ll have the full list of new prices up on our site shortly, but for now make sure to get your orders in before Monday in order to take advantage of the current pricing.
Here are more details about the price increases direct from the Flint River Ranch official release:
As this year draws to a close it is with regret that we must inform you that we have to raise our pricing on our products in the coming year. We have been hit hard this year with continued increases on the manufacture and production of our products. Flint River Ranch is not happy about these continued cost increases to our products, and we are in the process of finding a new facility to help us develop Flint River Ranch products at a more reasonable rate.
However, the industry as a whole continues to face an uphill battle in costs. There are no opportunities for long term volume contracts, and other countries (China & India specifically) continue to buy all available products for export to feed their people and to also make some of the products we see on the shelves in various stores. (No, FRR products are NOT made overseas.)
However, all the ingredients that we use are the same as those manufacturers use to make products for our families’ needs. So while it’s great to use human grade ingredients, the downfall is we’re just as susceptible to market increases as what we see going on in the grocery stores. Flint River Ranch tries to be conservative in passing on our costs, but after absorbing these increases for the past 2 months, we’ve had to make these adjustments.
We know that when you honestly compare FRR products and services to our competitors you will find that we are still very competitively priced. We have been asked to drop the bag size or limit the quality ingredients. This is something that we will never do. Our bag size stays the same and our quality will never be compromised.
All new pricing will be posted on Monday, January 2nd via our online shopping cart and through the various independent distributors’ sites. I thank you for your attention to this matter, and please know that it is our number one focus this coming year to continue to provide the best for your pets’ nutrition while we look for more reasonable production costs of our formulas.
We thank you for your support and wish everyone a safe and happy New Year.
