E.P. Carrillo has informed its retailers that the company will be implementing a price increase for some of its lines next month, while also announcing that three of its lines are going on hiatus.
The increase works out to about five percent when averaged out among the lines being affected, though several are not seeing any increase. The company isn’t changing the pricing on its Inch Natural, Inch Maduro and Encore lines, while a pair of recently released vitolas, the Pledge Apogee and La Historia Parientes, will also hold their current price. In a letter to retailers, the company attributed the need for the increase to “ever-increasing costs to manufacture our products.”
The increase will go into effect on Feb. 15.
Additionally, the company has announced that it is putting its Capa del Sol, New Wave Reserva and Selección Oscuro lines on hiatus due to production constraints. While the lines are not being fully discontinued, they will not be available for retailers to order for the foreseeable future.
The following chart is a live look at what companies have announced price increases or no price increase for 2022.
