The Ins and Outs of Herbal Supplements International Trade and Invitationfor Business Opportunity for Representation of Holistic Herbalist Suite ofProducts and Services
Herbal Supplements International Trade is quite an emerging field and many companies are willing to buy our products. However, it is necessary to understand this opportunity in the complete manner.
We at Holistic Herbalist, are also actively drawing representation of our products and services in other countries and propose the business opportunity as National Business Associate.
Why is there requirement of Herbal Supplements International Trade?
When you want to buy herbs or herbal supplement, you have two options…
- You can buy from herbal supplements store, it can be online or offline or both. OR
- You can buy herbal supplements directly from Natural Health practitioners or from a store suggested by him.
The supplement that you are buying from any herbal food store is either manufactured in your company or it is imported from some other company from any other country. You can tell it easily be looking at the label.
If the supplement is imported from other country, it comes under Herbal Supplements International Trade.
Rules and Regulations for Herbal Supplements International Trade:
In most countries, Herbal Supplements are governed by Agriculture or Health Ministry or Natural Health Department. Herbs or Herbal Supplements are not regulated products in most countries and are generally considered to be safe for human consumption.
Still, not all herbs are allowed in all countries. Some herbs are unknown, or some are considered not safe, some are banned. So each country has its own regulations about herbal supplements.
When any person, end user or consumer, wants to get a herbal supplement, it quite easy even to order it from international websites and Customs causes less trouble in clearing it as it is only for personal health, not for resale or commercial purpose.
However, when someone wants to import herbal supplement as a distributor or representative or exclusive reseller or National Business Associate, it becomes a different game and comes under Herbal Supplements International Trade.
Three Levels of Sales or Distribution Network of Herbal Supplements:
It is called termed as Tertiary Sales Point – when you as an end consumer buy herbal supplement from herbal food store or practitioner.
Secondary Sales Point is when a Practitioner, Practitioner Club, Organization, Institute, Individual Herbal Food Store or Chain of Herbal Food Store buy herbal supplement.
Primary Sales Point can be the manufacturing company directly or some other company who is representing and importing herbal supplements from manufacturing company. In our case, Primary Sales Point is National Business Associate.
Even though, presently, we WELCOME all Sales Queries from any individual herbal food store or practitioner or person in all countries where we don't have National Business Associates, we are actively seeking a person or practitioner or company who could represent our products and services and possess their EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS in a specific country.
Of course, when, individual client or herbal food store or practitioner from any country where we have National Business Associate (Primary and Secondary Sales Point) – will buy directly from our National Business Associate. That will be a the most rational, fast and effective manner for buying for them. We won't supply our supplements to anyone other than National Business Associate.
