Supplies of vitamin A from BASF increased steadily since early July, after the company lifted the force majeur for the product. Local producers cut prices in efforts to maintain sales.
 
Starting mid-July, one producer halted production for routine maintenance, which would last for 10 weeks.
 
Although the production of vitamin A has diminished in China, supplies are seen ample.
