From super charged smoothies to sleeping aids, it’s clear to see the growth of wellness in the UK is at an all time high. One of the biggest health and beauty retailers in the UK even has a designated “wellness” space in their newest Covent Garden store. This space boasts over 36 new brands and 300 new lines.
Most consumers are buying food supplements from mainstream retailers and would avoid buying from unknown online retailers due to fears about provenance and adulteration. Therefore, it’s a great time to start considering weather a wellness range might be a good fit for your stores.
Why work with the Supplement Factory?
We have had our own in-house brands in some of the biggest UK retailers since 2005 including Grocers, specialist stores and high street. Therefore, we understand the retail space and what it takes to create amazing products that your customers will get excited about.
Whether it’s a range of basic vitamins or a standalone product that screams luxury we can offer a full turnkey solution. With our expert research and development team being ahead of the curve we can help you inspire and influence the industry. Bringing products from concept stage to something that is ready to go straight onto shelf is what we are great at!
With our experienced team of qualified nutrition experts, we can provide you with fully custom formulations based on your budget, retail strategy and trends. So, if for example you would like to create a beauty multivitamin to sit alongside your already existing beauty line but have a strict cost price, we can engineer something to fit this. This can be done in many ways based on ingredients, serving sizes and packaging.
Quality and Accreditations
Our accreditations are something we are very proud of and have worked hard to get. We are a fully BRC AA certified contract manufacturer and have been for many years now. The BRC Global Standard for Food Safety is developed by food industry experts from retailers, manufacturers and food service organisations to ensure it is rigorous and detailed. Our quality doesn’t end there as we are also GMP certified (which means safe, high-quality products you can trust). Both our capsule and powder manufacturing facility’s have been set up by a leading chemistry expert with over 30 years’ experience in the industry. As a result, every machine is cleaned with military precision and all of our production takes place in an ISO Class 8 clean room environment with automatically controlled air and temperature levels. In addition to BRC and GMP we hold many other accreditations which you can view here.
Along with our accreditations we are also certified by the Vegan society and Halal Trust. Therefore, if you require your products to be vegan or halal certified we can do this.
We have previously undergone and passed a number of vigorous audits including ethical and compliant by various worldwide retailers, so this is something we are very familiar with and always welcome. We always remain audit ready due to our BRC Accreditation meaning we sometimes undergo unannounced audits.
Distribution, registration and regulatory advice
We not only manufacture food supplements for brands and retailers across the world daily. Our in-house brands are now distributed to over 20 countries including South America, UAE and Canada to name just a few. This means we are very well versed when it comes to shipping around the world and we know exactly what needs to be done.
Each country has its own set of rules that you need to follow to be able export there. This makes the process a very long and laborious task. It includes everything from registering the product, submitting custom documents, and checking NRV levels. If you do not have experience doing this, it can be very daunting. For this reason we can be on hand to help you with your very own export process.
