(Yicai Global) Nov. 18 -- Dong-E-E-Jiao Co. [SHE:000423] announced a number of price adjustments for its products used for Chinese medicine. Starting from Nov. 18, it will raise the factory gate price of its major products, Dong-E-E-Jiao, compound e-jiao pulp and Taohuaji e-jiao cake, by 14 percent, 28 percent and 25 percent, respectively.
The retail prices will also be adjusted accordingly.
