019 – Get Set for Manufacturing Challenge: Day 4

What is an MOQ and why do manufacturers have them?

A minimum order quantity (or MOQ) is the lowest amount that a manufacturer is able to make of a certain product.

The manufacturer generally sets their MOQ based on how many of a production run they need to make in order for it to be viable for them.

MOQs can vary from manufacturer to manufacturer – and there is always a way to negotiate them, as you’ll discover in this episode.


This episode is the third in a series of 5 podcasts that accompany my Get Set for Manufacturing Challenge.

Each episode tackles one of the 5 key things that you need to consider if you want to start working with a a UK manufacturer.

To take part in the challenge go to makeitbritish.co.uk/getset and I’ll send you all the details.
