I believe these presently are manufactured by the former ORWO, now known as Filmotec. Fortepan 100, itself, may not have been manufactured by Forte after it resumed its operations in early 2005 following its initial suspension of operations. I have some Fortepan 100 that was manufactured after this time and, even accounting for the considerable variations that can result in different production runs of Forte products , it seems a different emulsion alltogether.
