“The raw material & ingredient supply story is all about higher prices and extreme weather,” says Marc Brush, NBJ’s Editor in Chief. “Many companies now hint at stronger pass-through of that inflation to the end consumer, something that hasn’t happened to date. The impact to both the supplement and healthy food industries could be substantial, given the tightness and uncertainty that already exists in the broader economy.”
