I went to my CDC to receive my CD packs for next 3 weeks and she told me that CD has increased the tetra packs price. that too each one is 30 pence extra and I ended up paying more than 32.50. Any idea why they've increased the price?
Remember that CDC's are entitled to charge anything they wish over the RRP as we all operate as self-employed businesses. Also, tetra's do cost us more to stock - as Isobel says - (though the price has not increased since April of this year!) and it is recommended that we charge our clients additionally for tetra's ... however, that is our choice whether we do or do not.
Sorry Lipotrimmer that this does not seem to be in line with what your Counsellor has told you recently but that is the directive from the company.
I do charge 15p more for tetra's and bars - £1.55 for soup/shakes and £1.70 for tetras and bars. I have lots of clients who only have tetras and so decided to make the extra charge - as they cost me more. I also have quite a few clients who are on maintainence who come to me once a month for a box of bars or crate of tetras - who just replace one meal a day with either.
