The Price of Protein!
You may have already heard the news but protein is going up. Nobody wants to hear about increases in price when we talk about your favorite supplements. However, there is a protein shortage worldwide. We hate to say it but this will be causing everyone’s protein supplement pricing to shift over the next several months. Even the big companies! In short, here is what is happening on a global scale.
The Chinese are buying huge quantities of whey from India, New Zealand, and Australia for their own market to make baby formula and supplements for their sick people. With their middle class population on the rise, they are buying baby formula like crazy because now they can afford not to breast feed. Additionally, Australia and New Zealand, two of the largest producers, have had low output due to poor weather conditions.
This is putting a strain on the market for all supplement companies. Even your larger companies will be taking a hit once their locked in price contracts on protein powders are ready to be renewed. Though the prices are increasing, Prescription Nutrition will be trying to absorb the cost as much as possible and continue to offer our customers the very best price we can come up with.
