Changes to price and to mode of delivery for the price list period

Changes to price, delivery and distribution clauses for general and sale-to-order selection products must be made in Partner network or by using Alko’s offer form available at

An authorization must also be enclosed, when needed.

If only the prices of products are changed, it is possible to agree on submitting the information as an Excel file. This file needs to include at least these information: Product number, product name, new purchase price and new retail price. The product number is determinant when prices are updated. In this case only the products with a change in purchase price are to be listed in the Excel sheet. The file is sent to at the latest on the day of notification shown in the listing instructions.

A changed prices list will be sent to the suppliers for checking. Supplier may request amendment to these prices in the following cases:

  • There have been used false pricing factors in the calculation (taxes, logistics costs, tax concessions for small producers etc.)
  • Product's deposit information is wrong
  • There has been made clear typo in a price input

Changes cannot be made to prices if the purchase and retail prices are calculated correctly in the offer, and Alko's pricing gives a same result.

The purchase price of a product cannot be changed for the first price list period after the product’s listing date: it can only be changed for the price list period thereafter. This rule concerns also when product’s supplier changes. However a change in the mode of delivery makes an exception to the rule. If the delivery mode is being changed for the first price list period after the listing date, the purchase price has to be altered in a way that the retail price remains the same.
