Starting a Vitamin Company: Choosing Between White Label and Private Label Manufacturing

Private Label Manufacturing

When choosing a vitamin company, there are two main options: white label and private label. 

Both have advantages and disadvantages, so it’s important to understand the differences before deciding.

What is a private label manufacturer? 

Private label vitamins manufacturers are companies that create vitamins on behalf of another company, either for health or nutrition purposes. They sell their products to another company under their own brand. For example, a clothing retailer might hire a private label vitamin manufacturer to make their brand of vitamins.

A private label vitamin manufacturer can create almost any type of vitamin product based on their client’s specific needs. The client then sells these products to consumers under their own brand name. As the client is paying for the entire manufacturing process, the cost of the products will be lower than if they were to purchase them from a regular vitamin manufacturer.

What is a white-label manufacturer? 

A white-label vitamin manufacturer is a company that already manufactures its own line of vitamins and supplements. They then sell their products to another company that wishes to use the manufacturer’s name on their products. For example, a health food retailer may purchase their vitamins from a white-label manufacturer to give their customers the impression that they are buying high-quality products.

Private label versus white label manufacturers

Private-label vitamin companies tend to be less expensive than white-label companies because they have lower overhead costs. Because they are selling their own products, they do not need to worry about inventory, advertising, distribution, etc. This translates into lower prices for their customers.

However, there are some drawbacks to working with a private-label manufacturer. For starters, you are basically “renting” their name to sell your products. That means you won’t have any control over the manufacturing or branding process. You will also have no control over the quality of the products sold under your name. In addition, private-label manufacturers often don’t have a huge selection to choose from. Finally, developing a relationship with a private-label manufacturer that you can trust takes time. 

On the other hand, white-label companies tend to offer better quality and a wider variety of products than private-label vitamin companies. They also have more control over the manufacturing process. This means that they can ensure that the products are of the highest quality and meet the specific standards their customers require.

Which one should you choose?

Ultimately, the choice is up to you. If you want full control over the manufacturing process and build your brand, you should consider working with a White Label Company. However, suppose you want to develop a quick and profitable business without dealing with all of the issues associated with manufacturing your own products. In that case, you may want to consider a Private Label company.


The difference between private and white labels is the ownership and management of the product by an outside party vs. your company. Your business and goals will determine whether you should pursue the white or private label option.
