Step by Step Guide on how we Source our Raw Ingredient


Why quality raw ingredients are crucial if you want a successful Sports Supplement brand!


Every sports supplement on the market should be high performance, nourishing, and free of harmful ingredients. These are absolute requirements that must be non-negotiable for any Sports Supplement that's manufactured.


However not all Supplements manufactured are equal. Some are downright dangerous.


If you don't ensure the ingredients you source meet stringent quality benchmarks, you run the risk of a sub-standard result that could have adverse, or even harmful effects.


So what can be done to ensure only the best ingredients are sourced?


Quality testing for source ingredients can be done in a variety of ways. There should be strict purchase specifications that ensure no damaging pollutants or contaminants get into the supply chain and rigorous evaluation of the end product to ensure effectiveness. As well, every single supplier of source ingredients should be monitored for quality control and good hygiene.


Purity and safety of raw materials are essential elements that must be established if you want to build a successful Sports Nutrition brand.


At Blackburn distribution, we pride ourselves on the superior quality of all ingredients we use in our supplement manufacturing process. Whether we're selling to household consumers or manufacturing private label products for budding brands, our source ingredients are selected via a set of stringent criteria.


There are four vital stages to our thorough selection and monitoring process and each of them is crucial to achieving a high quality final outcome:

Step One - Initial ingredient assessment benchmarks.

Before we purchase any ingredient it must meet our strict benchmarks for performance, safety and nutrition. We place special focus on ensuring absolutely no pollutants or contaminants are present in any of our source ingredients.


Our specifications are drawn up according to the latest pharmaceutical and manufacturing guidelines. These benchmarks give our customers peace of mind as they know the products they buy or commission from us will always be of the highest clinical standards.


Step Two - Selection and Assessment of raw materials.

Our Supplier selection and Qualification Program is a core component in our ingredient evaluation process.


What is it exactly?

It's a five phase stringent set of guidelines that we use to assess every single supplier we consider for quality of product, contamination, hygiene, purity, and integrity.


How do we formulate this criteria?

We do this in line with some of the most stringent regulatory benchmarks in the world from the pharmaceutical and nutritional industry. This guarantees every supplier we use is of the highest standard - and is what gives our quality control process the edge over most other manufacturers.


Step Three - Ongoing monitoring to ensure supplier performance and safety.

Once a supplier has met our initial health, safety and performance requirements they move on to the next stage. Here we examine supply chain integrity and continue to monitor our trusted supplier's health, safety and hygiene processes.


This phase also sees us checking the supply chain integrity of every single ingredient. We trace back the origin of all the source ingredients our suppliers provide us at a granular level to guarantee best purity. And we continually assess their premises, making sure they meet our strict storage, supply, and safety requirements.

Step Four- Global Purchase Strategy to give us wider market access.

The final phase sees us investing heavily in research and development as we continually search for the best suppliers. Our investment in this area gives us the ability to select only the highest grade suppliers.


We use the information gleaned during our research to compile a database of the top performing suppliers so we can select from them - enabling us to ensure a far higher grade of source ingredients.


We then reach out and set up agreements with these suppliers to bring them into our supplier chain. Our policy of doing this further improves the quality of the pool from which we source our raw ingredients.


This critical factor is what allows us to bring a much wider choice to our customers and enables our manufacturing process to deliver a superior end result.


Final outcome- What this means for you.

We believe our comprehensive quality control process goes above and beyond that of most other Sports and Nutrition Supplement manufacturers. When you choose Blackburn Distribution Supplements, whether for personal consumption or for specially commissioned products for your private label, you are guaranteed quality.
