    My Own Supplement Line

    Hello everyone,

    I am interested in starting my own supplement line; first and foremost a line of protein-based meal replacements. My question and reason for this post, is... how do I get started?

    I've read an article on bodybuilding.com about starting your own supplement line, but unfortunately it fails to mention exactly what I need right now, which is: who manufactures these types of supplements for the top brands you see in retail stores today?

    If anyone here has any knowledge of this, please let me me know A.S.A.P! as I am very eager to get started

    Thank you for your time and effort,
    King7886

    Do you have a business plan? A marketing plan? An actual product?

    The first place to start would be rudimentary business knowledge and having a finalized actual product. "Protein-based meal replacements" is extremely broad, you'll need to figure out actual recipes, the feasibility of these recipes, the profit margin, etc.

    If you don't have the business knowledge go to your local bookstore and buy a book about starting a business and business plans.

    Asian Babe,

    Thanks for the encouragement!


    EMISGOD,

    Definitely thinking up the cool name


    DriverDan,

    I have a crude business plan right now. I'm currently in the process of refining it down to a more realistic one.


    Intensity,

    Haha, no I'm not friends with that guy.

    Cool Makin' It!

    MCWTRAINER,

    Just like bodybuilding, if it weren't for the challenge, I wouldn't be doing this.

    But unlike bodybuilding, if you fail at this... you could end up broke.

    It's a huge risk, and you wont be able to price powders in your favor till you can move a lot of volume...a LOT, until then dont expect a whole lot of profit. There are a few companies out there that will manufacture your formula that you come up with, they'll help you with labels and even store it in their warehouse but its for sure not cheap. Those places typically wont do a run under 2000bottles, at least the ones ive seen.

    MCWTrainer and Rodthrower18,

    Nobody every made it to the history books without taking a risk. In my opinion, the biggest risk is not taking one. Thank you both very much for your valuable insight, as you both provide excellent points that I take into high consideration.


    Beeker 19,

    Thank you very much for your encouragement and motivation, and yes, I certainly have my work cut out for me, however, it's nothing I can't handle
