Disruption to service
Due to the need for our managing director, Chris, to undergo medical treatment, service will be limited.
Treatment is ongoing and continues into 2022.

Apologies to all those who received a series of emails yesterday.
There was an error with the configuration of our mailing list, meaning that every time a reply was made, it was copied to every recipient on the list.
This has now been rectified. We were not hacked, and there was no data breach.

In order to increase capacity it is going to be necessary to upgrade and improve our systems so that we can move to larger premises and take on more staff. While this is in progress, some functionaility will be limited and the website will be closed at times. We hope that these improvements will make operations more efficient in the long term, and will of course try to keep disruption to a minimum.

Demand is still high, but we have taken measures to better cope and have almost cleared the backlog. Thank you for your patience during this difficult time.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, an unusually large volume of orders and staff shortages, dispatch is taking longer than usual.
We are working 7 days per week to process orders and are dispatching as quickly as we can given the circumstances.
During March and early April we were receiving as many orders per day as we usually receive in one week. This has led to a sizeable backlog which we are now dealing with. See this page for our most recent estimates.

Keep up Vitamin C levels, especially the elderly and those who are already sick. Take a quality supplement where the vitamin has good bioavailability, or if natural source is preferred, drink rosehip tea.

New website launched
We have been promising the new site for some months now. Well, here it is.
Features include a registration option to allow you to retrieve and edit your details. These details are filled in automatically on most of the forms on the site. Registered customers are now also able to track orders online.
Products should be easy to find. You should be able to navigate to the right page in no more than 3 clicks. We are also adding more product information. This will be a constant work in progress as information changes and new research comes to light. We only publish details that have been corroborated by a number of reputable sources. It will take some time to populate product information data, but work on this has already started.
As with any new website, there are bound to be a few glitches in the early days. Please bear with us and let us know of any problems.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your custom and support since our humble beginnings in 1994.
