If you're looking for a manufacturer for your company's supplements, then, of course, you want to find a manufacturer that's reliable, experienced, and a good value. Unfortunately, with so many so-called "supplement manufacturers" out there competing for your business, it can be difficult to know which one is the best choice for your needs.

Instead, they outsource the manufacturing to yet another company, making them more of a "middle man" than anything else. Even worse? You get charged the mark-up in these cases.
This is precisely the reason why there tends to be such a large disparity in pricing for supplement manufacturers—sometimes as much as $10,000 from one company to the next.
