In April 2023, we made adjustments to our pricing in order to align with our current costs and incorporate new benefits for our customers.
Since we had not changed our prices in almost 10 years, our retail prices did not accurately reflect our costs to produce the products.
In some cases, such as our Santa Maria Style seasonings, the costs of sourcing the highest quality garlic and salts had gone up many years ago, but we absorbed those increases. With current global supply chain issues, our containers and flip top shaker lids were severely impacted, leading us to require a price change in order to stay in business.
SEASONING PRICE CHANGES
We raised the prices of some of our seasonings, such as our original Santa Maria style seasoning, but at the same time reduced the prices of specialty variants such as our MSG-free red label and sugar free pink label seasonings. Now all of our seasonings are the same price, regardless of which one you choose.
No one likes to pay more for the products they love, so we looked for other products that we could lower pricing on, since we control more of the supply chain. Items like our large bag of red oak wood chips and jars of salsa were actually reduced as a part of our pricing update.
ADDED BENEFIT - FREE SHIPPING
When we started on this price change project, we knew that our customers had asked for free shipping for a long time and worked out our pricing so that larger orders could benefit from complimentary shipping. Now, every retail order over $60 will ship free to any address in the United States.
