What are own label products?

Own label‘ is simply another term used for having your own brand – in the case of our industry, your own brand of supplements. It is also sometimes referred to as ‘private label’.

In summary, the supplements, health foods, herbals and other products are manufactured or provided by one company (i.e. Specialist Supplements Ltd), for resale under another company’s brand (i.e. your company).

How does it work?

We supply the ‘white pots’ (unlabelled products) and you can then resell our wholesale supplements under your own personalised labels – ‘own label’.

These labels feature your company logo, unique product names, colour scheme and contact details, essentially providing you with a range of products that is unique to your business. You have your very own range of supplements!

As far as any retail customer is concerned, you are the only retailer of these products. This protects hard-earned customer loyalty and promotes repeat business. It also gives you greater freedom when pricing your products in the retail market, as no direct product price comparisons can be made. This usually results in a higher profit margin.

Why opt for own label?

Aside from the key advantages already mentioned above, relating to customer loyalty and pricing flexibility, there are a number of other benefits to having your own label on the supplements you sell:

  • You can target a particular market through tailored branding. For example, slimming, fitness, digestive health etc.
  • You can build your brand and add prestige to your business. Being able to offer customers high quality branded products, in line with your company’s branding, inspires confidence.
  • You can get selling quickly and easily. Formulating your own products, ensuring legal compliance, paying for minimum runs and arranging for packaging etc, is a process that is time-consuming, complex and costly. Without experience, it can be difficult to bring a product to market. By re-selling a range of ready-made products under your own branding, you can achieve the same result in a very short period of time and at a fraction of the cost.
