Pricing Guidelines

Foodstuffs expects all products published to them on the National Product Catalogue to have a List Price loaded. Please ensure you follow the below guidelines.

  • Whenever you load a "new product" or "changing a product" it must have a valid and accurate price.
  • The pricing record must be attached to the highest level of the hierarchy in the National Product Catalogue. This is almost always the CASE.
  • Foodstuffs only accepts only one “LIST_PRICE” price type and it should be the same for direct to store (DSD) and the DC. Also, the list price has to be the same across FS South Island, North Island & Wellington. And this should be common across all their businesses (including banners) and excludes any allowances or trading terms.
  • The Distribution Method should be "UNS - Unspecified", regardless of whether it is direct-to-store or via distribution-centre
  • All negotiations, discounts, terms, price changes, and any other forms of pricing for existing products are done through Foodstuffs Own Brands Ltd (FOBL) or directly with the Foodstuffs business.
  • Every product must have at least one of the GTINs in its item hierarchy flagged as the “Invoice unit”.
  • Price Reason should be set as ‘NI – The introduction of a new item’ OR 'SC - Size change (Pack or Pallet)' for Foodstuffs because price changes are currently handled through the supplier price adjustment template
  • Pricing on National Product Catalogue Publisher is GST Exclusive
