NutraPro (5lb) chocolate

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. I heard from several companies that there is currently a shortage of raw materials causing delays in production.


  2. Im a big NutraPlanet fan. I think next time then they should get their raw materials in "bulk" so they dont run out 4 a while! -Bulk IT!-

    I am sure that NP has minimum order quantities that would scare you if you knew the volume or price; think minimum $50K just to get in the production line. Keep in mind, NP does not have the purchasing power that Gaspari, BSN, MuscleCrap etc... have so they can't get product lined up for months worth of deliveries (that ties up so much money it may not be advantageous to do). The same goes for smaller companies like Omega, look at Ultima, same reason it is in stock then out of stock.

    Also, look at how much bulk NP already carries. There is a huge inventory carrying cost they incur every month because of that so asking them to take on more will most likely lead to some other items we all like not being in stock. It's give and take, you can't have everything without NP getting as large as BB.com and then service will suffer among many other things (higher prices). No thanks, I'll take a small delay due to production issues to make sure I have a company like NP to shop at.

  4. I run a small locally owned business and I am in the same boat. We don't have the purchasing power of the conglomorates that surround our metro area. But at the same time we have less overhead, and better service which makes us well liked not only because of pricing but also because of the lack of sales pressure in the stores.

    Good things are worth waiting for. That's the last I'll say about the subject, I don't want to sound like I'm dissing the ones wanting updates, Just givin it to yall from the business perspective. Oufinny hit the nail on the head with his last post.

    Chocolate is excellent, choc peanut butter is good, vanilla is very good. Watermelon didn't do much for me and the cinnamon flavor is ok (had higher hopes to be honest).

  8. I understand this, thats fine. I also understand thats to bad, NutraPlanet is missing out on some serious cash due to this! When u need supps especially protein powder some people are not going to wait. I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO CONGRATULATE MYSELF AS THIS IS MY 100TH POST!!! WOOOOHOOOOOOO!!!!!!
