The great news is, Power Super Foods have dropped prices to keep their premium products price competitive with their competition.

The wholesale prices on popular lines have been significantly dropped by up to 60%. Products that have fallen in price include cacao, maca powder, chia seeds, Peruvian pink salt and more!
