Now, I would like to ask you a hypothetical question. If the main supplier of your main material input increased its supply price by 10% above what you pay at present (after allowing for inflation), how would you respond assuming that alternative suppliers if any left prices and other terms unchanged?
Purchase the same amount of the main material input from the existing main supplier
Purchase some of this material input from alternative suppliers, but continue most of purchases from the existing main supplier
Purchase most of this material input from alternative suppliers, but continue some purchases from the existing main supplier
Purchase all of this material input from alternative suppliers
