How to cooperate

Preparation of the supplement recipe together with the quote, according to the guidelines of the expected scope of the supplement effect

The IOC Client already knows the composition of the product that we are about to manufacture as it is meant to be a cheaper equivalent of a product that is already on the market. However, it is we who usually suggest the composition of the dietary supplement. The formula of the dietary supplement in such cases stems from:

  • the suggested scope of activity (including the declared statements of the effect)

  • suggested price (targeted price bracket)

  • method or distribution network of the end product

  • intended market.

After establishing the aforementioned qualities, IOC prepares a suggestion of the supplement composition to be selected. In the case of multi-ingredient products we hand over the suggested compositions for the exclusive use of our Clients. The choice of the composition determines the form of the supplement in most cases.

 

Selection of the proper form for a given recipe (soft capsule, hard capsule, tablet, sachet, can, liquid (e.g. syrup) and many others)

The form of the dietary supplement is determined by the composition of the supplement. To read more about the forms go to – Forms of dietary supplements.

After determining the size of the order as well as the composition and the form of the supplement, you will receive a full quote for the production supplement and specify the date of service provision. The estimated date of service provision is 8 – 12 weeks.

 After the acceptance of cooperation conditions and the acceptance of package design, the order will be completed.

Purchase of raw materials needed for manufacturing the dietary supplement

In most cases IOC makes use of its own sources of raw materials, but there is a possibility of producing supplements delivered or indicated by the Client, provided that they conform to all the legal requirements related to food and requirements in terms of the technology of production of a given supplement (e.g. proper fragmentation, consistency, etc.).


Necessary testing

Quality control of IOC finished goods requires safety checks of the food we manufacture. For each production batch, we carry out basic microbiological testing as well as that for the presence of heavy metals. At the request of our Client we may conduct additional testing.

The finished product is accompanied by a Quality Certificate.


Providing a description of the supplement in accordance with the applicable law

We have knowledge of the labelling of dietary supplements, foods intended for medical purposes and functional food, which is why we create descriptions for products or suggest the introduction of changes to the content suggested by the Clients. More about legal requirements…


Design and selection of packaging and their purchase

We include three packaging suggestions (free of charge) to choose from.

There is a possibility of printing the packaging based on designs delivered by the Client.

The form of the supplement is also important. This depends on the form of the raw material used for production, daily dose and many other factors. More about forms of dietary supplements…

    • 150 000 hard capsules of the supplement of one type (e.g. 5 thousand packages with 30 capsules in each),

Registering the product in the proper office (registration at the Chief Sanitary Inspectorate) with the authorisation of the Client

At the request and with the authorisation of the Client we register the manufactured supplement with the Chief Sanitary Inspectorate. The service is free of charge.


Bulk packaging, palletisation

We package the manufactured dietary supplements individually and in bulk. We place dietary supplements ready for transport on Euro-pallets. Both the palletisation and packaging are included in the price of the supplement. All the calculations that we make include expenses related to production (if not indicated otherwise).
