Lallemand/American Yeast announced a price increase to be effective May 14, 2006, or as current contracts expire. The company will increase prices 5 cents a lb. (8 cents a lb. compressed basis) on full tanker trucks of fresh cream yeast, 8 cents per lb. on pallet quantities or greater of bag yeast and 10 cents per lb. on pallet quantities of block yeast. Dry yeast prices will increase $0.12 per pound.

The company cites environmental, energy, transport, raw material and packaging costs as reasons for the increase.

I will not be deterred.

I have a pound of ADY in my freezer.  Since I use it a tsp at a time, I'll be making pizza with that until I retire (if it doesn't go bad).
Since joining this forum, I've begun using words like "autolyze" and have become anal about baker's percents.  My dough is forever changed.
