Start your own supplements business

In the current climate, there has never been a better time to enter the natural health industry or to expand your existing offering of health foods and supplements.

The supplements market is booming and, given the world's continued focus on maintaining good health and natural immunity, it shows no signs of abating for many years to come.

Peoples' outlook on well-being has changed, perhaps irreversibly, as they now actively seek ways to take control over their health on a scale never seen before.

For some, either new to the industry or new to running their own business, the prospect of starting a supplements business may seem daunting.

After all, don't you have to worry about licences, regulatory compliance, quality assurance, product formulations, minimum manufacture runs, packaging, stock storage and inventory and order fulfilement?

With our help, the answer is "no"!

Specialist Supplements Ltd is a wholesale supplements supplier with a difference. Established for a quarter of a century, we are a full-service company that handles all aspects of your supplement business needs.

We offer high quality encapsulated and powder food supplements to trade customers across the world and from a variety of backgrounds - both retail and clinical.

We have a comprehensive range of products to support a variety of health goals and lifestyles - off-the-shelf and ready to get selling immediately.

You have none of the hassles, complexities or costs, associated with product formulation and manufacture (such as minimum runs and legal compliance issues). We take care of all that for you.

Alternatively, if you have something specific in mind, we can help with custom supplement formulations.


Your own range of branded products

Whether you are re-selling our off-the-shelf products or creating a bespoke supplement formula, you have the option to use your own branding for the product(s) - the "private label" option.

We have a dedicated in-house team ready to help you with this. Having streamlined the process over many years, it is quick, easy and affordable and we guide you every step of the way.

You have the option to adopt one of our attractive label design templates (which we personalise with your company logo, colour scheme, contact details and unique products names), or supply your own artwork for a completely bespoke look.

For a small, one-off fee, you will get to have your very own range of branded supplements that is unique to your business. And, even better, your range can be ready in a matter of days!

There are numerous benefits to selling under your own label, from increased profit margins to higher re-order rates. Click here to find out more...


An integrated e-commerce website

If you are new to supplements retail, or are diversifying, you may not have a sales platform as yet. We can help with this.

Selling online is the quickest, easiest and most effective means of reaching the widest potential customer base. What's more, it is future-proofed against future lockdown scenarios which prevent face-to-face client contact.

We can create a ready-to-trade e-commerce supplements website for you, with everything you need to get selling FAST. Once your site is built, it will be ready to start accepting orders immediately.

Never sold online before? Don't worry, our tailored websites are easy to use and manage.

We will build you a turnkey website that is pre-loaded with your product images and descriptions and personalised with your branding - packed with features and perfect for beginners and experts alike. We save you valuable time by populating it for you (an extremely time-consuming process when done manually yourself) and you can rest assured that the content is legally compliant and correct, as it is built by industry experts.

Your site will be fully editable by you following handover and will be 100% yours to do with as you see fit (even add products not sold by Specialist Supplements Ltd). 

Best of all, our website build service represents incredible value for money, because we want to help our customers get up and running, ready to get selling as soon as possible.

An easy and affordable fulfilment solution

One of the biggest obstacles for people wishing to start a supplements business can be the logistical issues associated with, for example, stock storage, inventory, product labelling, picking, packing and posting and associated staff costs - in other words, order fulfilment.

Here at Specialist Supplements, as a full-service supplier, we offer all trade customers a free, no-hassle order fulfilment solution that is also great for cash flow. It is called our no-fee supplements dropshipping service.

Put simply, you sell and we ship.

Dropshipping is a direct dispatch service. We label, pack and post your orders directly to your customers as and when you receive them, and your customers will think they have been shipped by you.

We can even dropship orders using your own private labels at no extra cost, if you choose to set up your own brand with us.

Unlike many other supplements wholesalers and fulfilment houses, we provide this dropshipping service free of charge (all you pay is the postage as if you were posting the orders out yourself). You can even include a personalised delivery note and order message for a small fee.

What this invaluable service means in practice is that:

  • You don't have to lay out any money before you make your own sales (e.g. on bulk orders). You only buy the products from us when you sell them to your own customers.
  • You don't have to worry about product shelf-life, because we hold all the stock and carry that risk for you.
  • You don't have to worry about stock storage space or keeping inventory.
  • You don't have to worry about preparing the orders for shipping (including picking, labelling, packing or posting) - all very time-consuming and sometimes complex tasks.

All you have to do is concentrate on the core business of making sales. We do the rest.

Dropshipping is ideal for anyone who: has limited time and resources; works on a mobile basis; has a second job; has limited storage space; or would simply rather spend their valuable time on core income-generating activities. And we dropship worldwide.

Tailored marketing services

As part of our full-service offering, we can assist you with tailored marketing materials and SEO.

For example, the design of branded product posters, a product catalogue, web banners, social media banners, business cards, letterheads and more.

We can even supply you with an automated blog posting service, where relevant supplements-related content is auto-posted to your website! New content is an essential component of a high-ranking website, yet very few people have the time or expertise to write blogs on a regular basis. This service makes it super easy!

Many business are priced out of running regular marketing campaigns because they don't have the budget to pay a marketing company to do the work and/or they don't have the time, resources or expertise to carry out these activities themselves.

At Specialist Supplements Ltd, we make these services as affordable as possible, to help our customers sell more.
