I had always assumed that the savings in selling boxes of 100 sheets compared to packs of 25 sheets were substantial. Just have a look at the selling price of a 25 sheet pack then multiply it by 4 and compare it to the price of a 100 sheets box. The difference in price is massive whether it is Ilford, Fotospeed, Adox etc. Buying 25 x 4 packs is something close to 2.5 times as expensive as a 100 sheet box.

Perhaps the situation you describe is related to UK retailers. It's not the case here.

You are right. I digged it up (is this the correct past tense for dig?- dug?).
True. Even Fotoimpex ran out of the glossy type in 5x7.
Due to extremely low sales on the small formats we decided to cancel 5x7 sometimes in 2011 before we started finishing the paper in our factory. Then things were changed but we did not (yet) re-introduce the small formats which we can do by now.
So it was never finished. I have now set it back up to live status -for now only as a 25 pack- so it will be finished with the next run and re-stocked.
Possibly we will also introduce a 100 pack then. We can now do these things even for 1 pack which was not possible before when our manufacturing was not up and running.
A price difference of 2,5 between 4x 25 packs as opposed to a 100 pack sounds odd to me and canīt be an ADOX price comparison.
We offer our products at very low prices if you look at our production costs. No one gets rhich here and no-one in the chain makes more than 20% which is essential to keep a business allive and running.
Great news Mirko. I also hope this paper will stay in your portfolio even after you'll release the Polywarmtone paper in the future.
There are no plans to drop one paper in favour of another. If we have enough demand to keep the paper allive we will.

Mirko, I understand the Variotone is a house brand paper (Hausmarke) but don't quite usnderstand why it is not available trough more retailes like the rest of the Adox line. Is this one of the strategies to keep the costs low?
I would not call it a house brand. Normally a house brand is a given product branded for other companies with their brand.
I understand the Variotone is a house brand paper
Variotone is a unique product produced only for us.
We also finish it which is a major part in the production.
However the company making the emulsion and coating it has raised prices to an extend that we had two choices:
1) Make it the by far most expensive paper in the world
2) Limit the amount of money a retailer can make on the paper to a number which is comparable to what he can make on other brands but less than what ADOX usually offers.
Some dealers understood others decided not to carry the paper under these circumstances.
Itīs a very low profit world we are living in if it comes to analog photography...
