Startup Services

We’re always here for you!

When starting a new business, it’s very important to find the right partner. We have amassed many – and unfortunately sometimes negative – experiences. And we want to spare you from that! So we’ve published our network of service providers in all the areas that will be important to you.
If you notice any points of contact missing here, simply give us a call, and we can surely get the names for you.
As for the partners listed, we can confidently say: you can rely on them, as we’ve had great experiences with them ourselves. Many have become our friends, or as we say, they belong to our “family”. (We do not receive any commissions or kickbacks.)


Consulting

Have you set your sights on entering the nutritional supplement industry?
Do you have an extraordinary idea, or a very specific target market whom you would like to serve?
Have you already taken the first steps, and perhaps assembled a comprehensive business plan?
Then we should get in contact (with no obligations) and set up an initial feasibility study in which we’ll view and analyze the market and the competition. After our initial conversation we’ll provide an assessment as to whether your project, in our view, is realistic and has the potential to be profitable.

In the early stages, people often learn of resources and opportunities to help them forge ahead successfully for themselves. But in any case, you’ll benefit – with no obligation – from our extensive business experience and expertise in the nutritional supplement industry.
Please note: we are open and honest, so we could possibly tell you something you don’t necessarily want to hear. But of course we’ll be objective, since we only want the best for you: that you’ll start a successful, profitable business, rather than accumulating unnecessary inventory.


Partnership / Mentoring

If you convince us, we would be willing to participate in a partnership with you, which could take a number of forms. We’ll be happy to discuss it.

Occasionally we can even assume a mentoring role or enroll company founders in master classes. Here we openly exchange a vast quantity of knowledge, which is true to the saying “Giving is more beautiful than receiving”.

Play it safe when establishing your legal texts and become a member of Händlerbund.
This is worth every Euro you invest, and the basic membership is definitely sufficient to start.
We recommend the shop in-depth assessment, which provides an in-depth legal check of your shop and its products right at the beginning, as well as suggestions for improvement so you can be legally in the clear.
You can find all the information you need at www.haendlerbund.de


Call center services

Händlerbund offers a call center service, so that you can forward your phone number to the call center in Leipzig so you’re always reachable by phone. Pricing for this is based on usage, so you are charged as calls are taken.

Label printing

The graphic designer can create a “master label” which you can then adapt to each of your products. But if you prefer, we can handle label printing for you. Simply send us your design; we’ll check it to be sure it is practical and printable, and then make you an offer.


Creating product photos

If your labels are in digital form, we can create 3D product labels for you. These pictures are high-resolution but not overly expensive. For as little as 20 EUR you’ll receive great product photos without the typical logistical hassles normally necessary for this process.
You’ll be excited when your first product photo is finished and can be added to your shop!


Marketability certifications

You should obtain a marketability certification right at the outset for your own safety. We’ll take care of that for you!


Organic certification

If you want to sell organic products, you’ll need to register with an organic certifier and arrange an initial assessment.
We recommend pruefverein.de (www.pruefverein.de) – they are very capable, they will explain the individual steps and then issue the certification (valid for one year).
The cost for this – which is based on the amount of work required – is in the range of 300-500 EUR per year.


Product development

By collaborating with experienced pharmacists we can develop all imaginable products for you, often making the impossible truly possible.
But in any case, we ALWAYS comply with legal and regulatory requirements.
And of course we’ll take care of purchasing raw materials and producing prototypes.


Product manufacturing

Our core competency and passion is producing your products.
Whether you desire private label, white label, bulk goods, or individual production, we’d love to get together and discuss the details.
With us you can rest assured that we won’t talk you into anything just to make a quick sale. We’ll make careful plans and stand with you for the long haul. We want to be with you as your business grows, by providing optimum quality for a win-win situation.


Private Label

Do you want to begin cautiously and test the market first?
Then let’s talk about what we can do for you.
We’ll supply your private label products – products from our standard selection with your own label attached – with as little as 100 units.
Delivery time is usually within five business days.

Above all, you can be assured that when your sales are brisk, you’ll always have inventory available.
You’ll never be out of inventory because of long production times.
