It's called rising costs due to demand, internationally.
Don't count on it changing anytime soon.Psalm 34:10 - "The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing."

Yea protein isn't getting any cheaper anytime soon lol. You can thank a lot of the big companies like Gatorade swooping up lots of the whey.

Gatorades "recovery drink" is such a joke. Why wont people just by quality protein instead of that sugary crap.

They aren't the only ones that bought up a lot I vaguely remember Dirk mentioning a few of the companies that did think Pepsi and coke were mentioned also.

For years I had the standing rule of not paying more than $6/lb of protein. And for years that was an entirely reasonable limit. Not so anymore - I look at many powders and refuse to purchase simply because of the ridiculous price.

I will bring up this though,as a Nutritionist(Dietetics degree coming soon) whole food is superior in most respects to whey.Maybe not in BV but whole foods if you can is the way to go

We live in a time where our planet suffers from two epidemics simultaneously - starvation and obesity.
Look at all these little kids taking care of the music biz, don't their business take good care of me.

it stinks big time...
However, just so everyone here realizes, its not companies just randomly choosing to charge you more. Whey prices have more than doubled in the past 12 months. It sucks for companies just as much as it sucks for individuals.
If you are buying whey at a cheap price now, there are only 2 reasons as to why:
1. Its using old raws(purchased before the massive price increases hit)
2. It does not meet label claims
Anyone see the 5lbs "whey isolate" selling for like $29.99 here? Whey isolate costs $7.50/lbs MINIMUM for the company making the product. That means 5lbs of whey isolate costs $37.50 BEFORE the flavoring, bottle, lid, label, shipping is factored in...
keep buying the cheap stuff, and keep getting ripped off
iForce Protean will be available for $46.75 on March 1st here. Top notch quality, and top notch flavor. Can't beat it.

But I think distributors and manufacturers alike should expect a reduction in protein sales as long as this trend continues. When the market is dominated by huge corporations like Pepsi, smaller companies are gonna suffer in consequence. And the consumer gets shafted no matter what - by either paying exorbitant prices or by purchasing so-called Gatorade Post-Workout garbage.

I cannot stomach oatmeal in milk anymore.In the first 3 years of my lifting career I ate egg and oats for breakfast.Never again.I gotta blend my oats in a shake now for breakfast if I want to have them.
Chicken sucks imo.So much more benefit eating fresh fish instead of it.It is always possible to buy high quality foods for low costs.
Go to the butcher,fishmonger or to a ethnic district.Talk to the manager,explain what you do and ask if they can cut you a break.Over here in Ireland we catch a lot of cod and salmon.I get some pretty good prices for them if I buy 5lbs in one go.Same with beef.Great grass fed beef over here that you can buy with little to no fat.Butcher sends a text out when the meat is done in its hanging process to all of the customers.That lactic acid really makes it melt in the mouth.
Sorry for the rant but its purpose is to show people that meat is accessible for cheap prices.I met this butcher 5 years ago when I was just 18 and my loyalty has helped me to get cheap meat.I'd suggest this route if your thinking of switching to whole foods meals only.

I see this was mentioned in the latest MF e-letter...
- Protein - Pricing on protein appears to be stabilized at the present time. The general consensus is that it will stay at current levels and possibly decline a bit as we get into the second quarter of the year. I think prices will probably hold about where they are today. There is some additional capacity of whey protein coming into the market in the second quarter but I am not convinced it will be enough to drop pricing. The good news here is that we should not see more price increases through the year.
