Danisco has increased the prices of its entire portfolio effective immediately or as contracts allow. The decision is due to the cost escalation on raw materials, packaging and logistics. Prices can rise up to 10 percent, according to the company.
Historically the Danisco Animal Nutrition was able to offset increases in input costs through efficiency gains. The Covid-19 has had a long lasting impact on the input cost around the world, states Danisco.
“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. Danisco Animal Nutrition is a business of IFF’s Health and Biosciences division.
Danisco is not the only company that decided to announce increased prices. Evonik recently announced a price increase of 15 percent for its product GuanAmino (guanidinoacetic acid) globally, effective immediately. Evonik produces specialty chemicals. The company is active in more than 100 countries around the world.
