What frustrates us is some items made in the UK are so cheap in the US and even allowing for shipping, import duties, then the 20% VAT all of which compound it's still cheaper to buy from the US. So much for free trade which was supposed to equalise market prices to a certain extent.

So it's cheaper for me to buy Ilford films from the US and even with taxes I make a considerable saving.

Manufacturers price goods to the market., that's business, they are willing to make a reduced profit margin to attract large volume sales, it's the supermarket principal.
