One of the many benefits of working with a company that provides custom dietary supplement services is that you have the freedom and variety of choice to offer customers vegan friendly gummies, one of the most popular formats on the market today. It’s even better when you know that those same gummies are making an impact on the environment. Read on to learn how.
What is veganism?
Many people confuse vegetarianism and veganism, so let’s clarify. Vegetarian refers to the exclusion of meat, while vegan refers to the exclusion of meat and any other animal-derived ingredients. That means no milk, eggs, whey, or gelatin. Gelatin is an important one when discussing gummy vitamins, as many are gelatin based and gelatin is obtained by boiling tendons, bones, ligaments, and skin of cows or pigs. However, when you partnered with Makers Nutrition, you have many private label options that would satisfy both you and your customers, which we’ll get to later.
Vegan supplement sales and why veganism matters to the planet
The gummy vitamin market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.81% and hit nearly $12 billion by 2026. While this growth is a strong indicator that your health brand will thrive should you offer gummies, it is also important to note the environmental difference to which your supplements would be contributing. Going vegan halts further soil degradation, deforestation, and greenhouse emissions associated with meat production, thereby helping to slow climate change and secure our global food supply.
Veganism is here to stay
If you are still wondering if vegan gummies, vegan anything is just a fad, then consider the times in which we are living. Vegan used to sound “high class.” Today, many restaurants offer plant-based dishes, and they are becoming increasingly popular. Walk into a Whole Foods and you are inundated with plant-based beverages (gears could also be turning for powder supplements). The trend is staying. Professional athletes, celebrities, talk show hosts—they are all promoting a healthier lifestyle through veganism, making it mainstream for all. And you can thank millennials for their influence on social media, normalizing plant-based eating so much that it is now leading a consumer demand.
The vegan consumer perspective
When millennial and other consumers learn that your private label offers vegan products, they will feel more inclined to purchase supplements from you. They will feel as though they are playing a part in healing the planet, which they are! Once you consider the reasons why veganism is important and how you can lead a positive shift in howe we consume nutrients, this information can be added to your website that can be printed right on the labels we apply to your bottles. Instead of looking for a co-packer and printer you can count on, Makers Nutrition invites you to share how you plan on advertising your gummies and our talented designers will go through all the different layout options until you are met by one that best suits your goals.
Vitamins and supplements manufactured for vegans
People who follow a vegan lifestyle need to be on top of the nutrient levels they may have previously been obtaining through meats and animal-derived sources. Here are some of those vitamins, minerals, and more that may easily be obtained through your vegan gummy supplements.
