Dear Customers & Friends of friedrich ingredients

Goodbye 2021! What a year! International travelling stopped and re-started - slowly. So did exhibitions and meetings. The pandemic stopped many businesses, and boomed others. Predictions for the future? As safe as a lottery ticket.

We from friedrich ingredients would like to inform you what you can expect from us in 2022. Our industry suffers from shortage of raw material and increased cost which has not seen similarities over the past 20 years. Ocean freight, packaging, energy and lack of availability sums up into unpredictability in procurement and, above all, higher cost. However, our customers were able to reduce the cost of imported goods by a strong 7% this year, thanks to a weak Euro.

What can be done? Besides placing orders much sooner than ever before, we suggest combining different goods into one shipment. With container shipping prices coming near $5,000 sailing from West to East, it's worth looking into filling up those containers. 

Here is our shortlist of items that can be added to your ingredient order:

Any good news? Of course! Several!

Finally, we all from friedrich ingredients would like to thank you for your support in this difficult year. 2022 will be our 25th year in business. Let's make it successful - for all of us.

The friedrich ingredients Team Germany and Team Dubai wish you all the best for the festive season ahead of us, and a good start into 2022.
