Effective 15 Feb 2022, there will be a price increase on some of our products.
We know what you’re thinking — no whey... and we're making this announcement with a heavy heart, too 😞
To be fully transparent, we wanted to elaborate on the reason why we have to do this.
First of all, we want to say thank YOU.
We are so grateful for your support, which has enabled us to continue to do what we do best... which is to feed you with the best functional snacks and drinks, even through the multiple lockdowns, gym closures and uncertainty brought about by the Covid-19 pandemic.
From Day 1, we at myFITBOX have always strived to put you (our customers!) first by staying committed to sourcing and bringing in premium, high-quality products to each and every one of you in the most convenient way possible, be it through our cashless vending machines in the Klang Valley or through our e-commerce platforms.
And as such, we make this announcement with a heavy heart: some of our prices will go up in order for us to keep up with the rising costs.
Although some of our suppliers have started increasing their prices since the start of the pandemic, we’ve held off on any price increases as long as we could.
Bearing the cost
Moving forward, we’re just not able to continue absorbing the costs of the spikes in prices of raw materials for ingredients, packaging and logistics that are still being impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic.
As you may already know, the pandemic has affected supply chains and manufacturing processes globally.
In fact, there is a major imbalance of supply vs demand just for whey protein alone. Over the past year itself, there has been a global shortage of whey protein, across the three types of whey (isolate, concentrate, and hydrolysate),
Basically, due to these shortages in raw materials, packaging, ingredients and logistics, the price of the final product that you buy is also affected.
We’ve held off on any price increases as long as we could even though some of our suppliers have started increasing their prices since the start of the pandemic.
But after assessing the situation, we realised that these prices are here to stay and moving forward, we cannot continue to bear the additional costs if we wanted to keep myFITBOX afloat.
In line with these spikes in prices, the prices of some of our products will also go up between RM0.20 - RM1.00.
We hope to continue feeding you for as long as we can, but we also recognise that this price adjustment may affect our sales in the coming months, as this price increase will influence your budget.
So, if you want to stock up on your favourite snacks or drinks at the best price possible, we highly recommend that you make your purchases by 14 Feb 2022 before the price increase takes effect.
It has truly been a privilege to fuel your gains all this while and we hope that in spite of these price adjustments, we will still be able to feed you as frequently as before.
Thank you for taking your time to read this. As always, if you have questions or suggestions, do let us know and we will address them as best as we can.
In the meantime, we urge you to sign up for our newsletter and keep an eye out on our social media accounts on Facebook and Instagram so that you’ll be the first to know whenever we launch a deal or an exclusive product discount!
With love and gains,
Geoffrey & the myFITBOX Team
