New York – Oct. 7, 2021 - Danisco Animal Nutrition, a business of IFF’s Health & Biosciences division, has announced a global price increase across its entire product portfolio, effective immediately or as contracts allow. The move is the result of unprecedented cost escalation on raw materials, packaging, and logistics. Therefore, we will increase prices by up to 10 percent, depending on the product grade and geography.
Our Animal Nutrition business has historically been able to offset increases in input costs through efficiency gains. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a sustained and lasting unfavorable impact on input costs around the world. In the case of transportation, for example, our industry is facing dramatic price increases for air and ocean freight. At the same time, prices of key raw materials and packaging have reached historic highs. Regrettably, we cannot continue to absorb these additional costs and maintain our pace of product supply in the medium to long term.
“By taking this difficult - yet necessary - decision of introducing price increases now, we provide ability for our customers to plan while allowing us to maintain our position as trusted partner and supplier of innovative feed additives and services that continue to deliver value, efficiency and that optimize grower productivity,” explained Pauel Fokin, vice president of Danisco Animal Nutrition, IFF.
