When your potential manufacturer is communicating using nothing but superlatives, they are open to all business opportunities and use unrealistic timelines, we see that as a red flag.
Often, private label supplement manufacturers are promising timelines from product conception to delivery in a matter of weeks, which makes it impossible to test for stability. Can you be certain that the manufacturer will provide you with a product you can confidently offer to your consumers and bet your brand image on? Also, don’t be fooled by the cheapest price promises – if you hire a partner at a cheap cost, and later you find yourself in a product recall situation, it may cost you much more.
Consumer trust takes years to build and seconds to break. Frankness, down-to-earth transparent communication, and saying no to certain offers can be your best indicators for a healthy manufacturing relationship.
