Notice of Price Change

 

We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude for your continued patronage of the rice factory.

 

Due to the steep rise in distribution costs and ocean freight rates in Japan, we are finding it difficult to maintain our retail prices. In particular, ocean freight rates have soared more than three times compared to last year's rates, and we do not expect a recovery to previous rates in the foreseeable future.

 

We have been working hard to keep prices unchanged by reducing distribution costs through mass production contracts and improved efficiency, but we have been unable to do so and have no choice but to raise prices in order to maintain our current services.

We would like to ask for the understanding of all our customers.

 

We will continue to make our best efforts to deliver safe products and provide products that satisfy our customers.

 

We would like to thank you for your understanding.

 

【Details of the price change】

Rice : $0.4~0.6/lb price increase (Effective from new crop for each brand)

Other products : about 15% price increase (Effective from December 1, 2021)

価格変更のお知らせ

 

平素よりthe rice factoryをご利用いただき、厚く御礼申し上げます。

 

この度は、日本国内の流通コスト及び海上運賃の高騰に伴い、小売の価格を維持することが困難な状況になっております。特に海上運賃については、昨年までの料金と比べ3倍以上に高騰し、以前の料金への回復は当面期待できません。

 

これまでも、大量生産契約や効率改善などで流通コストの削減を行い、価格の据え置きに尽力して参りましたが、力が及ばず、現状のサービスを維持するためやむなく値上げさせていただく運びとなりました。

日頃より当店をご利用いただいております皆様におかれましては、何卒ご理解くださいますようお願いいたします。

 

今後も企業努力を行ないながら、安全な商品を継続してお届けし、お客様にご満足いただける商品の提供に努めてまいります。

 

何卒ご理解を賜りますよう、お願い申し上げます。

 

【価格変更の内容】

(お米)$0.4~0.6/LB up 各銘柄とも新米から順次適用(19年産、20年産は現状価格を維持)

(その他)15%前後 up 2021年12月1日から適用

Letter from the shopkeeper

Dear customers

Thank you for visiting our online store.
We renewed the online store in the first half of April. We will continue to improve the service and usability, so we look forward to your continued support.

On the other hand, regarding the shipping fee, which has been temporarily reduced since last spring, we have returned it to the original price in line with the transition to the new online store.
In order to prevent COVID-19 infection, we started an initiative so that customers can shop without going out, and we are very grateful to everyone for their favorable reception.

Vaccines are becoming more widespread in the United States, but I hope that they will return to a healthy United States as soon as possible.

In addition, the arrival of the ship is delayed, and we apologize for the inconvenience to our customers.
The fare for ships from Japan is 2-3 times higher than before, and it is still difficult to make reservations, but we will continue to devise ways to deliver delicious rice to everyone as much as possible.

Sincerely,

Satoshi Ito
