modify price

“Since December 1, the price of some low-temperature yogurt in Yili has increased, and there is no clear range of price adjustment, mainly because of the rising cost of upstream raw and auxiliary materials.” Recently, a person familiar with the situation told the snack generation.

“External reasons include the rising price trend of white sugar, packaging and other materials last year. Previously, the product end price was controlled through internal product structure adjustment and other means.” These people stressed that recently, the prices of low-temperature yogurt in many dairy enterprises have increased.

Another person familiar with the situation also told xiaoshidai that the ex factory prices of some low-temperature products of Mengniu have also been raised slightly because of rising costs. “But the terminal price is not expected to fluctuate much.” The person said.

At the same time, some people in the industry pointed out to the snack generation that the upgrading of some product standards of dairy enterprises will also have an impact on the selling price. “Some live fungus products, the iteration of some yogurt products, formula upgrading, and the use of environmental protection packaging materials all have a slight impact on the cost.”

Statistics show that Yili’s low-temperature yogurt brands include Yili, Changqing, joyday Xinqu, brown charcoal burning, etc., Mengniu’s low-temperature yogurt brands include Mengniu, Guanyi milk, terensu, Nordic cheese, etc., and Sanyuan’s low-temperature yogurt brands include Sanyuan, probiotics, Xuening, etc.

In terms of cost, the cost of raw milk is also rising. “Since the second half of 2021, the price of bulk feed has increased significantly, resulting in a significant increase in the cost of upstream breeding. The increase in the cost must be transmitted to the milk price and finally transferred to the price of end products.” Modern animal husbandry said.

However, interestingly, at present, many low-temperature yogurt brands are still promoting in the market terminal. Today, xiaoshidai saw in a large supermarket that the price of yogurt is stable, and some well-known brands are still carrying out promotional activities such as “giving gifts”; On an e-commerce platform, several big brand yogurt can be added to the shopping cart at a promotional price after purchasing multiple pieces. This shows that the market competition of this category is still fierce.
