There's always something to talk about at H&B, so please do keep coming back to check out our latest news!
From 1st October the Isle of Man minimum wage will rise from £7.50 to £7.85. This keeps the Isle of Man’s minimum wage ahead of the UK, Jersey and Guernsey.
However, it means that we’ll be introducing this year’s Minimum Wage Consumer Price Increase to drinks products in order to fulfill our obligation to support this latest measure by the Isle of Man Government.
As usual, our policy is to directly link our prices to the cost of the new minimum wage, so that we can minimise the impact to our customers.
