You'd have to consider the POP factor. Paying over profit (to them)= pricing over profit (for you). How much profit can you squeeze out of a jar of mustard? It would have to be the mustard of all mustards...and still there is a price point in that catagory. Then take into account a low minimum cost of labels and the process of labeling.
Philippe's in Los Angeles has a very popular mustard (their own formula going back a hundred years)...at a sales price of $5 a bottle.http://www.philippes.com/...ppe-s-hot-mustard.html
They can dictate a price because it's their own special mustard and I'm sure it's a good marketing move...after so many requests from customers.
So you would need a private label company who needs the business....has a wow product...a customer base that wants to take it home at the price way higher than any mustard in the Supermarket ...sets a low minimum...even before the cost & effort of labeling.
