Rising Price of Cookie Dough Fundraisers

Post Icon Posted on 11/04/2009 by Howard Gottlieb
The economy has had its effects on cookie dough fundraising in more than one way.

First of all the ingredients that are used to make fundraising cookie dough have skyrocketed. In fact many cookie dough manufacturers report unprecedented increases in their cost for raw material. Besides the cost of raw material or ingredients for cookie dough, the cost of shipping frozen cookie dough has also gone through the rough.

Shipping costs in general have risen because of the cost of fuel. Diesel fuel seems to go up everyday. But there are even worse issues for shippers of frozen products.

Frozen cookie dough must be shipped in one of two ways. Either you need to ship it on a frozen or refrigerated carrier or you need to pack it in dry ice. The carriers that can handle frozen shipments have increased their costs more than regular carriers. In fact lately more and more carriers are defining more and more areas as remote and charging additional fees for getting the product there. There are times when it simply seems ridiculous when an area is deemed remote.

But nevertheless the cost is too great for fundraising. There are two answers to the rising cost of frozen fundraiser cookie dough. The first is to shrink the size of the product offered. That is the best option if you can keep the value of the product acceptable.

The thing many producers have chosen to do, though, is to raise prices and shrink the product size. If prices for cookie dough continues to increase as it has this past year groups may be forced to explore their options.
