Many perceive the word dietary supplement negatively. This is due to the numerous scams that various network companies have dealt with in the past.
Meanwhile, biologically active additives (BAA) have very good prospects, both in terms of increasing demand and in terms of sales.
The fact is that food products contain less and less natural ingredients and more and more artificial additives. Those who believe that sausage is made from meat are naive eccentrics. However, products of artificial origin often do not have substances important for the body.
Dietary supplements are designed to compensate for the lack of vitamins and minerals in the body.
Therefore, a business based on the production or sale of dietary supplements has all the prospects for growth. Already, the sales of dietary supplements are estimated at tens of billions of dollars, so finding your niche in this market segment is not so difficult.
The most profitable is the production of dietary supplements
However, the creation of modern and powerful production requires huge investments. After many years of lawlessness, relative order has been established in this market segment, so for the production of dietary supplements it is necessary to obtain many permits and approvals, undergo testing procedures and examination of the biological properties of dietary supplements, certify production, and so on.
More realistic as a business may be the organization of sales of dietary supplements
In order to engage in the sale of dietary supplements, you do not need to obtain a license, and this is a huge advantage compared to the sale of medicines. On the other hand, the law does not allow uncontrolled sale of dietary supplements.
For example, you can not sell dietary supplements via the Internet or from stalls.
The implementation of dietary supplements, according to the law, can be done in pharmacies, health food stores, grocery stores, sections or kiosks. This is due to the fact that some dietary supplements must be stored under certain conditions, and sellers are required to ensure storage conditions under the control of supervisory authorities. Therefore, to create a business selling dietary supplements, you must first conduct a marketing researchand identify the demand and level of competition for similar products in the nearest region.
And then you need to make a decision — either become a member of the dietary supplements sales network, or try to organize an independent business.
The first option, by the way, is not so bad for a novice entrepreneur. Starting work under a well-known brand removes many issues, including the problem of prompt replenishment of inventory. Becoming a member of the network, a novice entrepreneur has the opportunity to receive qualified consultations and advice.
As for the formation and development of a business, one cannot do without initial investments and current expenses. Indeed, for the sale of dietary supplements, it is necessary to have a room, at least in the form of a kiosk that meets the requirements for the sale of food products. In order to properly build a profitable business, it is necessary to treat this professionally and systematically enough.
