Why Does It Matter?

Herbalife deals with products that fall into the category of food supplements or dietary supplements. When entering the Indian market to sell these types of products, it’s crucial to follow strict guidelines. It is all about ensuring food safety and meeting certain standards set by the authorities.

By obtaining a food license, both Herbalife and its distributors are essentially obeying the regulations and making sure our products are safe and up-to-date. It is about showing customers that they can trust the products they are consuming. Moreover, it adds a layer of credibility to the distributor and the company they represent.

I Don’t Want to Apply For Food License, What Should I Do?

If you’re not keen on going through the process of obtaining a food license, there’s another option available for you: becoming a preferred customer. This route allows you to still enjoy Herbalife products, but without the responsibilities and requirements that come with being a distributor.

As a preferred customer, you get some great benefits. First off, you can snag Herbalife products at a discounted price that comes between 15% and 35% off. This discount applies whether you’re buying for yourself or your household. Plus, you don’t need to hassle with getting a food license, making the whole process a lot simpler and more straightforward.

If you decide to go the preferred customer route, you might miss out on some extra perks from Herbalife. Herbalife distributors often score even bigger discounts, up to 50% off. Plus, distributors have the right to resell the product. Buy low, sell high = profit. What could be better than that?

Depending on your goals, one option might be a better fit than the other. If you need consultation, find me on WhatsApp at +40 770 635 458, or simply use the form here.
