Dear Neo Customers,
For the first time in five years, we have made the difficult decision to increase our pricing. This price increase is stimulated by rising raw material costs across the board for us, from packaging to produce and even shipping and duty fees. We have always strived to make products that are accessible and fairly priced, because we believe that juice is for everyone, and so we considered all aspects of our business and where we have seen the steepest price increases to ensure that our new pricing strategy is sustainable for the business and fair to our customers. Here is what to expect with our new pricing:
We acknowledge that price increases are happening everywhere and that rising costs are creating a lot of pressure on families to make ends meet. We are providing a few cost saving options mentioned above, as well as:
In this current economic climate, it can be easy and understandable for anyone to make hard decisions around their purchasing behaviours. We want to add our voice to the call to support local independent businesses whenever you can, even if it is a small portion of your spending. Spending money locally has a positive multiplier effect on the local economy, making it a sustainable and resilient economy. This commitment is essential to ensuring small businesses survive and grow stronger as Alberta’s economy recovers from the pandemic and swinging commodity prices. Here at Neo Juicery, we have built our business model entirely on the premise of supporting economic locality throughout our supply chain. When you spend your hard-earned money with us, 87 cents of every dollar is re-spent in the local economy, thus feeding the business engines of small independent family businesses. We do this by purchasing all of our raw materials from independent family-run businesses in Edmonton and across Canada; we do not consume or hold any debt with interest feeding the money cloud and big banks; we hire local folks and use local technology infrastructure for our operations as much as possible; and we maintain and reuse our tools and niche items to ensure that we only purchase replacement products from global conglomerates at most once per year. This financial system is likely similar to many small businesses in Edmonton, and so the best bang for your buck is to support local.
If you have any questions or concerns about our new pricing, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
