Message From The General Manager – AML Rate Hike

Hi Everyone –

I regret being the bearer of bad news, but AML has just announced another “fuel surcharge” rate hike. Starting in July, the fuel surcharge rate will increase from 23% to 26%.  I crunched the numbers and this will add two cents per pound ($0.02) to our shipping costs.  This means that starting in July our new shipping rates for Azure & Blue Valley Meats will increase to:

$0.43/lb for Dry goods 

$0.60/lb for Chill/Frozen goods

For all United Natural Food and Fresh Produce items any increase in cost will be built into the prices you see on the ordering sites. However, I promise to do my best to keep our prices as low as practicable… and competitive as possible.

Cooperatively Yours,

Keith Nyitray
