New Product Assessment Information
Health 2000 is always looking for and welcoming new innovative suppliers and products to their stores.
Before you contact us please consider the following:
- Are your products natural with no synthetic additives?
- Are your products new and innovative?
- Do your products have a point of difference to the ranges we already carry?
- Your products MUST NOT contain ingredients that, if sold by Health 2000, would be in breach of the Medicines Act 1981.
- Your products MUST NOT contain ingredients that, if sold by
Health 2000, would be in breach of the Dietary Supplements Regulations
In order for us to consider selling your products in our stores, you
will need to comply with the process below. Product selection is at the
discretion of the Health 2000 Product Advisory Group (PAG).
Currently there are two types of supplier. If your product(s) are
approved you will be advised if you have been accepted as a
'Non-Preferred Supplier' or a 'Preferred Supplier'.
Non-preferred Supplier (White List ) - Your products have been deemed
suitable for sale in our stores. This allows you to approach our stores
regarding the stocking of your products, but the stores are under no
obligation to stock your product(s). The stores are not able to promote
your products nor will you be able to use our logo on any of your
advertising or literature. If your products are taken up by 90% of the
stores and sales reach a reasonable value, you will be considered for
'Preferred Supplier status'.
Preferred Supplier status - In return for agreed set fees, your products
will get promotional opportunities within the stores, which could
include point of sale, advertising and inclusion in our magazine. You
will also be expected to attend our yearly conference where you will
have the opportunity to meet all our store members over the course of
3-4 days. If your products are chosen for Preferred Supplier status, an
appointment will be arranged to meet with our Managing Director to
discuss Preferred Supplier terms.
Due to costs involved in the process of assessing new suppliers and
products, there is a non-refundable administration charge of $275 plus
GST. This must be paid before the assessment process will start. Payment
can be made by cheque or direct debit; Bank Account details are 01 0315 0041982 002 - Use your company name as reference.
HOW TO APPLY
- Complete and submit the 'New Product Information' form.
Depending on the number of products you are submitting for
consideration, you can either fill one form per product or if a range
(10 products or more), complete one form and supply ingredient listings
for each of the products in the range.
- Supply samples of the products you would like assessed.
When submitting your product samples, please include:
- Payment for $275 plus GST (non-refundable).
- A business card.
- 6 samples of each product or, if a range, a minimum of 12 mixed samples. (Please note samples will not be returned).
- 6 copies of your price list – Wholesale and RRP.
- 6 samples of any marketing support material you produce for your product(s).
All the above should be sent to:
Health 2000+ Ltd,
11 Hardley Street,
Attention: New Product Assessments.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT
Once your payment, information form(s) and sample(s) are received they
are distributed to the Product Advisory Group (PAG) members. The PAG
members are storeowners who assess the product(s) to determine
suitability for inclusion for sale in our stores. Consideration will be
given to the product ingredients, packaging, country of origin and
manufacturing, whether we already have products of the same type within
the stores, and whether the product(s) offer any points of difference.
The decision from the PAG will be communicated to you via email and will
include a short summary of the comments made during the decision
process. If your product is rejected the summary will include a brief
explanation. Product selection is at the discretion of the Product
Advisory Group (PAG) and once a decision has been made, no further
discussion will be entered into.
If your product is approved you will be advised as to the status. If
approved as a Preferred Supplier, you will be given an appointment to
meet with the Managing Director to discuss terms of supply.
TERMINOLOGY ON THE FORM
GMP – Good Manufacturing Practice. GMP certification is not essential but is looked upon favourably.
TAPS – Therapeutic Advertising Pre-vetting System. All literature
supplied to our stores must have gone through the TAPS process.
