Ayurveda has bright future in coming years. Its best option to start with Ayurvedic products but as specification, you are searching for is not available to small and medium size Ayurvedic Manufacturing Companies. In Ayurvedic Field most manufacturers are of small and medium size. Most of manufacturers will not have USDA certification. Based on your queries, I trying to provide you some clearances… Yellow color area is of your query:

  1. Same formulation you can get from any manufacturer but quantity will be high for this. You have to search for Ayurvedic manufacturer who has regular supply of this product. Manufacturer having regular consumption can only give you less quantity. Other wise you have to invest in whole batch. i.e. not less than 50000 cap.
  2. Both type of capsules you can get. only some rate difference will occur. That is not big problem. In Ayurvedic Products has good demand of Vegetarian capsules.
  3. Same formulation, you could get. No other additives will be mixed with bacopa powder. At present I don’t have rates of this. I give you after some time. In capsules, there is no need to add any additional additives as you mentioned. Bacopa powder can be filled directly in capsule shell. In case of tablet, manufacturer need to add binders, fillers, gum etc to provide it strength and shape
  4. Small and macro manufacturers will have only GMP, ISO certification. Very Few companies will have USDA certification. Only MNC’s and big companies will comply with USDA certification compliance.
  5. Every companies have its testing lab. But in Ayurvedic section, most of small companies don’t do heavy metals testing for their preparations. Heavy metal testing can be done from independent laboratory.
  6. Quality certificate will be provided by manufacturer for ingredients and strength added in product. COA ( Certificate of Analysis) and Test reports will be attached with sale invoice.
  7. In third party manufacturing, you will not get less than 25000-30000 cap in single batch. You have to get manufactured 25000 cap batch size at once. Manufacturer having regular batch for this product can give minimum quantity. You can ask to manufacturer about minimum quantity. May anyone could arrange to fill minimum quantity.
  8. Most of manufacturer takes 25-30% advance and remaining against performa invoice before dispatch.
  9. Only you tax identification number, company registration documents, registered office may require. But you can also get manufactured your ayurvedic products from any one of above documents. Don’t required much documents.
  10. Packing as per your choice will be available. Packing Material is marketing company’s choice. Even You can make available packing material from your side if you want. In that case, you will send packing design to manufacturer for any technical correction only.
