Good idea
Even the biscuit doesn't have PPE or mask
Came looking for some uplifting comments, unfortunately just the usual moaning
The sad part about this is, we have to have charities for the NHS to help them make ends meet. How about, we all now realise how insanely important the NHS is, and start increasing taxes to pay for it? Let's stop clapping for the NHS, and start fighting for the NHS. Give them what they need to help everyone in situations like this. It's happened before, it will happen again - let's not make the same mistake twice. Let's show them how much they're appreciated. And yes, I'm gonna order a good few of these regardless of how much profit is being made and how much they will receive, because everything counts in the end. I'm just happy to give what I can, happy to give more if asked. Worth every penny. Thank u all NHS staff! 😁

Then how would they make many money for the charity?


I suppose they could say "we'll donate 50p for every one sold" but obviously that'd never happen

Reckon there would be!!! How much do you think these things cost them to make !-) not exactly high quality ingredients involved! Cheap... Just like they taste! They should just donated some money to NHS directly if that's their goal

Yes I know. I was answering both of your posts.
Give them away for free and still donate money to the charity. Everyone wins: good publicity of Morrisons and the charity gets money.
Like I said, that will never happen but it's a nice thought
Heat added and huge respect to Morrisons for donating all profit in aid of the NHS Charities, rather than just a percentage of profit. Heat added OP 🔥

Thank you to all NHS staff as well for everything you're doing 💙

It depends what costs Morrisons are setting against the profits, and if it's anything like the bag for life, absolutely everything they can get away with.

The proper way to do this is for every £1 from each sale paid to charity (maybe less VAT), anything else is potentially profiteering from the situation, because there is so much you can offset in terms of costs, with Morrisons so there is 'no profit', and it is all paid as part of the production costs to Morrisons.

Morrisons should be upfront on what the percentage going to charity is, on the label, just because they are Morrisons doesn't mean profit led managers don't think about duping the public on what the production costs for this product are.

As example:
Morrison charge suppliers for shelf space, how visual a product is to a customer's eyeline. Depending on the prominence, a manager could argue that having this charity product centre stage was taking up valuable space of another product, and so the cost of not having that product centre stage, is a cost the charity product should bear.

(You get my drift), nothing is as simple as it sounds with multinationals, compared the simple headline, 'profits to charity'.

Just to add, this is across the sector, not just Morrisons, Tesco etc.

Not moaning - due diligence, explaining that 'profits to charity', isn't clear cut.

The amount to charity is 48p. It's much better to give direct.
52p costs, to make a single 60g Gingerbread (made by the 1000s) seems excessive to me.

Raw ingredients of course don't cost 52p but factor in overheads, salaries, rent, etc... Also not everyone that is made it's sold, there will be wastages.

If you have a business you will know.

Exactly the point I made, Morrisons will offset as many costs as they can get away in accounting terms. Depending on how the companies are setup, the actual production will be a third party supplier/subsidiary company, i.e. they 'buy in the biscuit from a supplier (even if the supplier is themselves) and there is nothing to stop that 'third party' company making a profit, producing the biscuit for profit, in terms of supplying the product to sell for 'charitiable purposes'.

The labelling should be clear and upfront, "profits to charity" is too vague, i.e. Morrisons should indicate that only 48p from each sale goes to charity on the pricing label in-store, on the actual product page and so should the twitter marketing feed.

As far I can, it doesn't, that's not acceptable, it's hidden away on a separate t&c page elsewhere.

Perhaps instead of hounding Morrisons, moan at Johnson to fund the service and staff properly.

Just let it dough.
Won't be stepping into Morrisons ever again, atleast until COVID-19 has passed, after the way they handle social distancing queuing outside the store and how crammed it is inside the store...

You've made your point now I think? I'm still happy to pay this. So Morrisons make some profit, I can give 48p to the NHS and get some ginger bread. Also, if morrisons make money on this, maybe some of it will see its way to the staff that are making sure we get food to keep us going. Maybe some of it finds its way to the companies supplying morrisons, some of which are finding it tough at the moment. Either way, you missed my main point, which was - why do we need charities for the NHS? Let's make sure they're funded properly instead! 😁
