Strange....

Since when did branded supps get cheaper than the bulk suppliers? Nutrisport is cheaper than everyone lately, why is that? Theyre cheaper than All-in-1's gain, their 90+ is cheaper than MP's ultimate protein mix and even if you roll your own its still more expensive. Can anyone shed some light on this as im in the dark here

    The price of whey has risen exponentially recently, and a large number of the *big names* stocked up massively previous
    to this boom in price i believe,

    Allowing them to keep prices lower, but only for a whille

    Where are you looking? I've just googled a few shop for it and they're all coming in at around £25 for 5lb. All in 1 are £19.99 for 5lb to £14.99 each for 2 or more...

    Ah yes, I see that price is close to All-In1 flavoured whey, but I tend to get unflavoured.

    Check it's actually Nutrisport. There was one very naughty boy last year making up labels of products very similar to well-known brands.

    Checked looks legit but the company themselves are selling it for a lot more. Email them and ask - for example use by date etc.

    having chatted with NS's owner in the past they are much larger than you'd think (200MT per year using their contract manufacturing arm).

    As above. Label seems legit and numbers for sales seem ok. Nowt to stop them selling at below RRP but with NS themselves asking £12+ more I'd want to know use by dates etc. Bulk whey users, for the most part, do plow their way (whey he he) through product so a short dated product might only last a heavy user 5 weeks or less in which case something that must be used in 6 months isn't gonna bother them.

    This one, for example, seems to be a well-known Scottish protein company but isn't:

    weird i bought two shakers from that company as it goes . Ill ask JM what the deal is on the pricing. I also do know that SS healthfoods sell Peak Bodys Mega Pro 50's for half price what peak themselves sell them for and theyre legit as i used to buy them (before i learned the true path)

    Check out the linked to ebay companies fat burners. Sells two - both the same but different names and makes the same claim for both. If it smells wrong....???
