This is Dante's response to the recent increase in their whey prices
We have tried to hold the line as long as we can but the dairies and their packaging mediaries just jacked milk related and whey prices across the board.
The companies that we make products for aren't too happy either but its the material cost that has risen. Sure doesnt make me happy, I would love to sell everything for a buck a pound.
You will see alot of smaller supplement companies and certain products by certain companies fall to the wayside......both from material costs going up and also GMP regulations.
My business partner and I have stood to the side and watched how two custom manufacturers who make a large amount of products here in the United States....have just cut corners left and right and companies are having them make their proteins for them. Their cookie cutter formula has a large amount of skim milk and non dairy creamer in it with 60% something wpc....(wpc is supposed to be 79-82%)....BUT ITS CHEAP TO MAKE AND THEN THEY CAN TURN AROUND AND SELL IT TO EVERYONE BELOW COSTS OF EVERYONE ELSE.....
THATS IT WE HAVE HAD IT. I am going to be very very very transparent here and Im going to copy that formula and show you guys exactly what it is and that we can beat any price out there when we are talking apples to apples and oranges to oranges. If you want dirt cheap protein with skim milk and non dairy creamer in it (tastes great!) because all you care about is the bottom line price....IM GOING TO MAKE IT FOR YOU...and beat their pricing.....and Ill tell you exactly whats in it. The marketing of it? Im probably going to put "Not exactly the best protein you can ingest
...hes obvioulsy kidding about selling non digestible protein, but hes making a point.
