What are private label supplements?

The private label supplement business model is a strategy where a third-party company is responsible for manufacturing the supplements (usually selling them in bulk) while another company buys these products, labels them with their brand, and finally sells them to the final public.

Private label supplement manufacturers usually specialize in a specific type of product. 

Thus, they usually offer vitamins, proteins, or other supplements in the form of:

  • Encapsulated;
  • Powders;
  • Gel capsules;
  • Liquids.

For the success of the strategy it is essential that the supplier and the brand store share the same focus and align to its strategic vision from the beginning.

Advantages of the private label supplement model

Operating in the private label supplement industry has several advantages.

If you want to start your own supplement business, but don’t have the resources to manage large custom production runs (or prefer not to), the private label model may be your best option.

You should also consider that with a good producer, the supplements will come ready to sell and you won’t have to spend your time, or wait to develop good know-how. 

Also, you don’t have to worry about legal and bureaucratic issues like FDA standards and safety standards. 

Remember that even if you outsource production, customers who buy your supplements will see your name and contact information directly on the products, which allows you to work on your marketing and branding strategies.

How to develop your private label supplements brand

To develop your private label supplement brand and to stand out in the market, you need to follow an efficient methodology. 

In this sense, you can follow the cycle of steps below:

1) Diagnosis 

 Understand exactly the scope of the project, its objectives, goals, and starting point.

2) Strategic Planning

 According to the assembled diagnosis, perform a strategic planning with well-defined actions.

3) Action Plan

Understand the resources you already have (and the ones you still need) and how you can align them with the planning.

4) Immersion

 Reflect with your team about the ideas, use historical data and forecasts, and develop practical ideas.

5) Follow-up

Follow up on the progress of the project, see how it performed in relation to the planning, and get ready to start the cycle all over again!

Now, going through these steps efficiently is hard work.

Instead, you can make a strategic partnership with advisors that already have a good track record of success.

In fact, this is the fastest and surest way.
