A UK-SME specialising in food supplements including natural ingredients and made to an exclusive formula is looking to partner with companies that can offer contract manufacturing and packing for their capsules and powders. It is envisaged that the partnership will take the form of a manufacturing agreement, services agreement or outsourcing agreement depending on individual circumstances.
A well-balanced diet is essential for providing the range of nutrients required for optimal health. However, often a good diet on its own is not enough due to various factors including dietary restrictions and individual health concerns. This is where health supplements can play a role.
A UK-SME specialises in food supplements including natural ingredients and made to an exclusive formula offering a natural approach to staying healthy. The main aim of these products is to help the body's natural biological processes to work as well as evolution has designed them to. The SME has separate products within its range to address separate health concerns such as a clinically proven formulation for colds and 'flu as well as a product aimed for those with digestive complaints.
The UK-SME is looking for a partner to carry out contract manufacturing and packing of capsules, pots and blister packs for their product range. Ideally the partner company should also be able to hold stock and send small amounts directly to the UK SME's customers but this is not essential.

The partner should be able to manufacture relatively small quantities, less than 100,000 capsules but have a capacity to increase. They should also have relevant quality certification and have halal and kosher facilities. It is envisaged that the partnership will take the form of a manufacturing agreement, a services agreement or an outsourcing agreement depending on particular circumstances.
