One of the most important aspects of running a nutritional supplements business is finding a reliable manufacturer who can supply you with high-quality products that are proven safe and effective. Not only do these 3rd-party providers help you create the products you want your customers to enjoy.
If it’s you’re new to the supplement business and you’re unsure how to start working with a manufacturer, don’t fret! Today, we’ll be talking about how you can work with nutritional supplement manufacturers effectively.
Find a Supplement Manufacturer with Exacting Standards
Not all nutritional supplement manufacturers are created equal. Some are more stringent when it comes to following standards of quality and safety. Choose a manufacturing facility that is audited by regulatory authorities at the local, regional, state, and national level and is compliant with cGMP standards.
It is also important that they have a high-quality website that contains detailed information about their operations and quality control systems. A supplement manufacturer must visibly display their contact information.
Understand their Offerings
Before working with a nutraceuticals manufacturer, you should also get to know what they offer. Familiarize yourself with the products they specialize in. It’s also a good idea to get to know the kind of services they offer like private label, contract manufacturer, design, and packaging.
You should also consider what certifications they can back up on the supplements they will create for you including organic, gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan, cruelty-free, and non-GMO.
Make Your Expectations Clear from the Start
Working with a supplement manufacturer involves clearly communicating your expectations so they understand what you need from the start. You can’t expect them to magically know what you need if you don’t tell them from the start.
Moreover, if there’s anything you need to do in order to expedite the process, be sure to follow-through on your end as well.
