AB Mauri Fleischmann’s Raising Yeast Prices

Chesterfield, Mo.  (Jan. 11, 2011) – Along with many manufacturers, AB Mauri Fleischmann’s has been impacted by considerable input cost increases including corn and molasses substrates, electricity, transportation and other key raw materials.  The company will be raising its prices in the United States and Canada on all yeast products as well as other bakery ingredients effective February 14, 2011, or as contracts expire.
