What has affected the vitamin market?

CUSTOMER NOTICE - The Chinese government has shut down up to 40% of its factories in a massive effort to address the nation's catastrophic pollution problem. This has therefore led to a high number of factory closures who manufacture the chemicals needed in the creation of Vitamin B1 and B6, whilst they improve their emissions. The demand for Vitamin B1 & B6 however remains extremely high and without the same levels of output the amount of Vitamin B1 & B6 available is massively reduced. With the shortage in supply and the manufacturing procedures causing more expense to Chinese companies the cost price of Vitamin B1 & B6 has risen over the last month and will continue to rise for the foreseeable future. It is with regret therefore that we have had to increase our prices to reflect the current market. We will try and hold back any further cost increases in the future as long as we can but it is inevitable that they will increase again at some point during 2018.
