The common problem faced by many entrepreneurs who engage a private label manufacturer is they go for the manufacturer that can give them the cheapest option and they encounter problems later.
1. Going for a "Yes Man" Manufacturer
The first mistake is going for a "Yes Man" manufacturer. Manufacturers have their niche products and speciality. When you go for a manufacturer who can promise you everything under the sun, this is where the alarm bells should go off.
2. Getting a manufacturer that has NO CERTIFICATIONS
The second mistake is getting a manufacturer that has no certifications. Manufacturers are held accountable for product safety and quality by the certifications bestowed to them. Problems will occur when you expand your business your customers start to demand to see your certification, especially when it comes to exports.
3. The manufacturer does not provide CONSISTENT Product Quality
The third mistake is the manufacturer does not provide consistent product quality in the name of maintaining price. Some manufacturers revert to substitute the ingredients in your formulation with cheaper alternatives. When this happens, your product quality can vary from Batch 1 to Batch 4.
When you go for a manufacturer who can promise you everything under the sun, this is where the alarm bells should go off.
