Price change Plenny Shake

TL;DR price of a Plenny Shake will go from €1,22 (€1,04 for subscription) to €1,40 (€1,19 for subscription.) Reasons: working with research analysts, R&D costs, sustainable packaging and delivery, increase in taxes and price increase from our suppliers.

 

Dear customer,


Over the years, we’ve built up a relationship with you, and part of that is being transparent about what we do, and why we do it. Therefore we’re informing you that prices of Plenny Shake will increase from €1,22 (€1,04 for subscription) to €1,40 (€1,19 for subscription) per meal on one time purchases on March 13th. However, everyone that has a running subscription before the 13th is grandfathered at current prices.


Before sharpening pitchforks and lighting torches, please read why we have made this decision. We are accelerating improvements and experiments, to grow our product range and flavors, such as a vegan Twenny Bar, new Plenny Shake formula and more. We are hiring research analysts, so we can be up to speed on the latest research papers, and continue making the healthiest meal scientifically possible. Other R&D costs are experiments, lab tests and ingredient sourcing. Despite producing very efficiently, our growth means that we have to outsource more of our production, which comes at a higher cost.  Our production partner is BRC A certified and we are BRC B certified which means a high level in food safety. We will compensate more CO2 emissions in 2019 (in 2018 we offset 329 tons), and are testing materials to make our packaging 100% recyclable.


External reasons are: the Dutch government raised taxes by 3% and suppliers and distributing partners raised their prices as well.

I would like to thank you for all your past support, and hope to count on it moving forward as well. If you still have any question, please do not hesitate to comment or shoot a message to love@jimmyjoy.com



With Love & Joy,

Joey van Koningsbruggen

    First you change how it tastes (now tastes pretty much like soggy popcorn) and now you increase the price. I’m canceling my subscription.

    As long as you keep developing, innovating and improving on quality, a price rise is fair. But the results of these activities and costs should be visible in the products, service, packaging and logistics.

    Has the problem with the shakes already solved? When you make a shake and leave it for a couple of hours then it becomes a nasty jelly substance…yagh.

    Is it possible to grandfather a subscription now, without having to order something before the fall?

    I thought about just setting up a subscription with the minimum requirment for 5 bags, and then pausing it after the first receivment, but anything that costs more than 35eur (Which is literally the shipping cost) you have to pay customs for in Norway, and I can’t really justify spending 70ish eur on shipping + customs for a 25 eur order right now.
