Outsourcing your supplement manufacturing allows you to focus on your customer's health and your brand's growth. The two most popular manufacturing options under supplement outsourcing are:
● Contract supplement manufacturing
● Private label supplement manufacturing
Allow me to explain the difference between the two and why private label manufacturing is the top option for supplement brand owners.
Private label manufacturing is when you buy supplement products with existing formulations in bulk from a supplement manufacturer, or in the form of direct packaged and labeled pre-filled bottles. These off-the-shelf products can be purchased in bulk or in bottles and can be brought to market quickly. If private label manufacturing is selecting a product, contract manufacturing is creating a product. Contract manufacturing means that the manufacturer needs to produce according to the brand owner's requirements, including product formulation, packaging, and labeling. So, what is the difference between the two of them?
|Brand owners and contract manufacturers need to discuss, agree, develop and test products.
|Direct purchase of the final product
|Ingredient sourcing, product development, final product purchase
|Bulk purchase or direct purchase of pre-filled bottles in labeled form
|Speed to market
By now you know that the result of both options is the same: you can sell products with your own brand name. What differs between them is the process, specifically the level of involvement between you and the product.
1. Small cost investment
It is because the private label is selecting existing products from the white label product line that this level of its involvement naturally dictates that she will not spend a lot of time and cost. Moreover, the start-up costs of the model are low since no new R&D is required on the manufacturing side of the product.
When you choose a stock formula from a supplement supplier and then put your own branding and packaging on it, how much does it cost to purchase the product roughly? I'm going to use vitamin C chewables and vitamin C gummies as an example here.

Since the manufacturing of supplement formulations is not as simple as A+B+C, it is important to consider whether the ingredients are subject to cross-reactivity and Meladic reactions. So I can't provide you with a reference price. However, what we can all be sure of is that contract manufacturing supplements will inevitably cost much more than private label manufacturing supplements under your own brand. This is because you are not purchasing the final product.
2. Fast delivery time
Because private label products are already manufactured, they usually have lower minimum orders than contract manufacturing. This also means fast shipping, so you don't have to worry about running out of product and not being able to replenish it in time. Here are the delivery times for the two ways to get your products from private label supplement manufacturers here:
|No stock, customized
|Within 7 days
However, contract manufacturing has a production shipment time of approximately 8 weeks from now due to the debugging of the formula.
Why stock formulas?
Stock formulated or white label formulated supplements help you sell supplements faster than custom formulated supplements. Why?
