Price Reduction (Urgent Information)

We marked down all Items on our website by 7.5% to 12% though all costs such as fuel, materials, logistics, wages, fertilizer etc. have rapidly been rising. We would like to pass along the benefits of our efforts and the recent currency exchange fluctuations to our customers.
This price reduction should also help our customers in countries where the currency has weakened against the US dollar recently.
