    Looking for Distribution for Health/skin care products

    Hi all
    I own and operate a Aloe Vera Plantation & Factory in the Caribbean.
    Have now started a new Aloe Vera plantation in Limpopo, SA and are in the process of building the processing factory with the help of the Dutch Government. Will soon produce aloe vera extract for export to Europe. We have our own line of Cosmetic and self-care products, which we would like to market and distribute locally in SA.
    Any help or ideas on this please advise, would appreciate
    Mervyn

    Hi Aloe

    I guess there a coupe of ways to enter the market:

    If you are marketing a new brand you will probably need to find a rep to start pushing the product through independents and chains. This could be one rep for the the whole of RSA or you could give the product to reps that already do an area and already do similar products.

    You could approach the big chains yourself (clicks, diskom), maybe package on their behalf. You would probably take a lower cut but would be guaranteed orders.

    You could also approach Avon for direct selling.

    Exports

    Hi Mervyn

    I was wondering if you have had any success with your distribution? Although we do not do distribution, I can assist with your export needs. We are a forwarding company with agent offices worldwide.

    If you are still receiving estimates for export purposes, drop me a mail and I can see if I can not match or better any estimates that you have been given so far. elmarie@ifsdbn.co.za

    Wishing you all the best for your business venture.
