Seeking A Retail/distribution Expert For A New Product Line
In q2 2012, this introtech client will introduce a new nutraceutical product line targeting a specific market segment. Distribution will include retail drug and supermarket chains. We are looking for experts at making those connections.
Our client's basic product is differentiated from other "supplements" in three ways. First, no other supplement product comes from the same source. Second, no other supplement product addresses the same specific health problem. And third, this supplement product produces rapid relief in a high percentage (study is underway) of sufferers. Rapid = minutes.
Once the initial product line is established in the nutraceuticals market, the active ingredients of this gras (generally regarded as safe) material will be extracted or synthesized as a pharmaceutical product, and will be taken through the fda maze to a 510(k). That, of course, is another matter entirely...
For now, we need a direct connection to decision-makers who allocate shelf space in supermarkets, drug stores, supplement/vitamin stores, etc. We also welcome advice on packaging/labeling/pricing, etc.
We seek to engage a consulting expert capable of handling or directing the distribution side of this equation...+7 Other Responses
