Raw materials

Before producing food additives, you need to decide on the type of raw materials required. When choosing a supplier, it is crucial to realise that large manufacturers sell high volumes. They offer a lower price than middlemen. However, a major provider is not willing to work with small batches, as the cost of the order will not cover the labour expenses of the factory.

How to choose raw ingredients for supplements

Millmax is a supplier of raw materials and substances for the manufacturing of dietary additives and cosmetics. We carefully select providers of primary products, constantly search for new ingredients, and replenish our warehouse with high-quality and certified components. You can be confident that we will find any raw material you need. All our suppliers undergo comprehensive quality control and adhere to our rules.

Ingredient formats

Raw material formats vary: powders, concentrates, infusions, and extracts. We specialise in fully standardised plant extracts. They have a fixed amount of active components, allowing the prediction of the supplement's effect in which they are included. Our primary products meet strict global requirements and standards thanks to full traceability and defect detection procedures.


Every raw material manufacturer uses their own technologies and quality control methods. Controlling the supplier is a complex process, but it is essential for every buyer to understand that the ordered material is always consistent. When working with us, you can be sure that the primary products you purchase always match the declared composition and are free of impurities. All the materials we use can be tested in specialised laboratories for:

  • availability and quantity of nutrients;
  • activity, that is, the conformity of the ingredient to the claimed action;
  • safety of the formulation. This item includes checking for the absence of pathogens, heavy metals, more than 500 pesticides, more than 100 volatile organic compounds and solvents, food allergens, gluten, and mycotoxins.

Many types of Millmax raw materials are available as certified organic products, and most of them do not contain GMOs, making it easier to obtain the necessary certificates for manufacturing.


You can inform us in advance what kind of product you plan to create, as well as the type or characteristics of the required raw materials. We will select materials that best suit your needs and obtain certificates confirming compliance with legal standards for the primary products. The Millmax team can prepare all the necessary documents quickly due to years of collaboration with various conformity assessment bodies.


Directive 2002/46/EU was adopted to harmonise legal norms regarding dietary supplements. All European raw materials must comply with it and be approved for use in nutritional additives. Since Millmax is located in Latvia, all our ingredients are in complete accordance with legislative requirements.

When registering dietary supplements, the production must undergo control for compliance with EU standards. The company must provide the registration authorities with documents confirming the quality of the raw materials. Our buyers receive all the necessary conformity certificates from us. To avoid problems with transportation or document processing in a specific European country, we consider local legislation regarding prohibited materials.

We understand how difficult and costly it is to start a business from scratch in the nutritional supplements industry. Therefore, we take on the tasks of searching, selecting, and preparing raw materials, as well as ensuring their safety. Contact us and we can help you set up a business selling dietary additives, vitamins or cosmetics.
