Such As?

August 21, 2008

From the IBOAI’s blog post about Greg Duncan and All In Energy drink:

As many IBOs know, the principals of Alticor manufacture for and invest in brands and other entrepreneurial ventures beyond their direct roles with Quixtar/Amway products.

Such as???

I’m very curious to know what brands they manufacture for? Does Amway manufacture other products for other companies? I own Amway’s Queen Cookware and the Amway/Rubbermaid food containers. My impression of those products has always been the other company made the product and Amway slapped its name on it. What the above quote seems to imply is that Amway is making products for other companies and letting them slap their name on it. That’s either news to me or I’m missing something here.

    I don’t know specifically what Amway manufactures, but since they have the capability, I believe they produce good for others companies.

    Just as an example, they probably would be capable of producing other brands of laundry detergent or soaps, etc.

    There are numerous examples of chain markets selling “private label” products which are in fact manufactured by national brand companies. Some products are sold to competing markets as well.

    There is also what is known as the “end run” products, this is the last of a batch of product, which does not meet the companies standards, although the product is consumable, it is sold under another less costing brand or storebrand name.

    I know this is prevalent in the industry. I’m curious to know what Amway produces for other companies. Up until now, I never knew that they did this. It would be interesting to compare the products and the prices.
