ASCEND Elite Protein Catalyst

01.06.12 We regret to inform you that Protein Catalyst is currently unavailable. We expect to have it back in stock in August 2012. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

 

Notification of Price Increase

30.05.12 Please be informed that we will be increasing our prices on this website as of Friday June 8th 2012.

ASCEND, the 100% Australian owned and manufactured brand from Murray Goulburn Co-operative, has held its price point in market now since 2007. However, with the recent dramatic shift in protein prices and worldwide shortage in WPI, the business has now reached a point where a modest price rise is required. This will ensure the business can continue to justify supply of its unique proteins to the ASCEND brand.

Thank you for supporting ASCEND!
