Questions on Pricing and Lead Time
What are your prices?
Every order is unique. Factors that influence the price of an order can include: formulation (e.g. ingredients, organic, certified organic, soy-free, gluten-free, allergen-free, etc.), method of delivery (e.g. capsule, tablet, powder), packaging (e.g. custom or stock), order quantity (e.g. total amount of bottles or cases) – and so on.
For more details on factors that can influence pricing, you can speak with one of our production specialists.
How quickly will you manufacture my order?
Manufacturing times for our products are as follows:
6 to 8 Wks for Tablets and Capsules
10 to 12 Wks for Custom Powders
Other factors influencing production times are product formulation, ingredient sourcing, packaging requirements, labeling, and product certifications and specifications. Certifications and specifications are especially important for first-time orders to ensure you receive the highest quality product.
Do you charge a manufacturing setup fee on top of the prices quoted?
No, the prices you have been given include all of our manufacturing setup fees. There are, however, additional fees associated with the requirements of allergen testing and other product testing procedures. Label printing and shipping are quoted separately and may require a setup fee.
Questions About Order Quantity
What is your MOQ?
Depending on the formulation used, our MOQ for capsules, tablets, and powder manufacturing services will generally fall between 1,500 and 2,000 bottles. The minimum for custom softgels begins at 300,000 or more. For more information, please call [866-282-4729] to speak with one of our Production Specialists or send a request to receive a personalized manufacturing price quote.
What does MOQ mean?
MOQ is an abbreviation for ‘minimum order quantity.’ MOQ is the minimum allowable number of bottles that a manufacturer will produce for a given order.
Can ABH Pharma offer MOQs under 1,500 bottles?
Short of a complete formulation, we may offer our valued customers an MOQ of fewer than 1,500 bottles. Please be advised, however, that quote requests falling below our MOQs must be examined and processed on a case by case basis for reasons of quality control. Stock softgels have a lower MOQ because they are in stock and ready to be shipped.
Do you list your in-stock formulas?
We do not make lists of in-stock formulas. We do, however, offer a number of stock softgel options. Depending on the type of product you are interested in, we may have a solution readily available for you. For more information, please contact our information desk at [631-392-4698] to speak to one of our knowledgeable Production Specialists.
Can I receive a sample of my product before I place an order?
On request, we can provide you with samples of the product in question before you place your order. Sample charges may apply in some cases.

Questions Regarding Compliance
Do you source only raw materials from the U.S.?
We work with domestic and international suppliers. Our vendors are selected based on numerous factors such as material quality provided by a supplier, their adherence to current FDA regulations, best practices, and cost. All the ingredients that we use satisfy the highest Standards of Practice for quality, purity, and potency.
Why is it necessary to test the raw materials I provide you with?
As with any raw materials, quality control measures must be applied to all ingredients to ensure they are pure, free of chemical and microbial contaminants, and meet our high ingredient purity standards.
What types of product testing do you provide?
On request, we will help secure standard microbial and purity analysis tests as well as allergen-specific testing. If needed, we are able to help your product achieve both kosher and vegetarian certifications.
