Otc Medical Food Product
We, a german based pharmaceutical company, are looking for some consulting services and advice around financial modelling and pricing structure for our otc medical food product in the us.
Our focus is primarily targeting the major pharmaceutical wholesalers, such as abc, cardinal and mckesson, as well as major drugstore retailers such as cvs, walgreens, riteaid and independent pharmacies across the us.
More precisely, we are interested in:
• do wholesalers add another margin before they sell the product to the retailers?
• if they add another margin, how high is it usually for medical foods/otc products?
• do the retailers always sell at the suggested retail price? Or do they always add a certain margin to their buying price (and ignore the suggested retail price)?
Please get in touch with us if you can provide us with some well-founded answers to these questions and the overall topic.
Thank you very much!+undefined Other Responses
Active Pharma Ingredients
Custom active pharma ingredients manufacturing/procurement for amino and keto acids.
Job is to help us find and set up custom manufacturing for a medical food.
Keto analogues of amino acids have been difficult to find gmp manufacturers in the us.
Our goal is to manufacture in the u.S., but this may not be an option due to cost.
Initial production/order will be 250 kg per quarter for a mix of amino acids and keto analogues of amino acids. Some acids will be as small as 15 kg and others will be as large as 75kg for the blend.
Most custom api manufacturers we have spoken with only go up to 3 to 10 kg and large manufacturers want more than 250 kg.
Price is an issue as medical foods are not covered by insurance. The product is designed for kidney patients and kidney disease dis-proportionally affects lower income people. We need to work to get costs down.
Applicant should have contacts and experience in medical food, api and or nutraceutical manufacturing/sourcing. We would like to avoid buying from china if possible.
Canadian manufacturing is also a viable option.+undefined Other Responses
