When you opt for a business in this field, the crucial decision comes: choosing a manufacturer. It can be challenging, as countless companies on the market manufacture private label supplements. You may have already found that out at the time when you started your search. However, there are a few factors to consider when choosing the right manufacturer:
The manufacturer of nutritional supplements should have certificates that will guarantee the quality of raw materials, production process and products. One of them is, for example, the Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP), which aims to ensure food safety. If you have specific requirements, such as organic quality or no GMO, look for the corresponding certificates on the manufacturer’s website.
2. Speed of delivery
You sure don’t want to wait six or nine months for your nutritional supplements. Therefore, the manufacturer should be able to produce your products within a relatively short time. The speed of delivery should, of course, not take priority over quality.
3. Minimal order quantities
It is important to choose a smaller number of products, if you are just starting to sell nutritional supplements. You don’t know how fast you can sell them yet. Therefore, choose a manufacturer that can supply, for example, 500 or 1000 units of a product.
4. A wide range of products
Also, make sure that the manufacturer offers different categories of nutritional supplements. As your company grows and you decide to expand your product portfolio, the manufacturer can support you. Otherwise, you would have to look for a new business partner again.
5. Stability of supply
If the manufacturer has long-term contractors, they have a stable supply of ingredients needed for making products. As a result, they can produce and deliver nutritional supplements on time.
6. Ability to customize the formula
Your supplement brand is unique. The manufacturer should therefore offer the possibility to adapt the ingredients or change the flavour of the nutritional supplements so that you can stand out from the competition. At the same time, they should be able to advise you on which ingredients may be combined.
