  • What is Toll Manufacturing?
    Toll manufacturing refers to a service arrangement where a brand provides all the necessary raw materials, formulas, packaging components, and even labels to a contract manufacturer, who then processes these inputs into finished products. Essentially, the manufacturer's role is to use their equipment, expertise, and labor to produce the final products based on the client's specifications and requirements. Why its advantageous Brands who have already invested in research and development, ingredient sourcing, and branding but lack the production facilities or prefer not to manage the manufacturing process directly. It allows brands to maintain control over the formulation and appearance of their products while leveraging the manufacturing capabilities of an experienced partner to handle production logistics, scaling, and sometimes even product testing.
