To our valued customers

Please see a response to the Retraction we have to display on our website for 120 days. As you can see we find the ruling unfair and unjust especially as you can’t appeal their decision.

Our Client acknowledges the Panel’s determination dated 31 July, 2017 and considers it harsh and unjust.  The panel led by you has delivered a contemptuous and summary dismissal of every single piece of evidence or fact put before it, both on this and previous occasions.

1: It is apparent that competitors lodged anonymous complaints to the TGA to try and break our large share of the market .

2: We were advised that we aren’t able to say we have the highest quality and larger dose than any other Bergamot product on the market, although we provided substantial evidence but they chose to ignore it.

3: We showed comparisons with other two competitors products in Australia which proved that our products are clearly higher quality products. They deliberately don’t list the % of polyphenols which shows the quality of the extract.

4: They stated that two competitors were larger companies than ours so they were more believably. Dismissal of attempts to inform the public about strength and dosage of BPF protects those who deliberately seek to mislead

5: No other Bergamot product available in the world matches the dosage or quality offered by BergaMet.

Please see a spreadsheet we forwarded to them stating recent studies highlighting dose and purity.

Quoted to highlight the fact that all studies conducted since 2014 have used 650mgs twice per day at a minimum of 38% BPF, no other Bergamot product offers this quality or dosage.
