Re-Activation of a Formula in Development with No Activity for 6 Months+

Re-Activation of a Formula in Development with No Activity for 6 Months+

Regular price $ 1,325.00

This item is exclusively for our clients who are currently working on developing a formula for custom protein bars with us, but have had no activity on their account for 6 months or more. It is the cost to re-activate the recipe vis-à-vis FDA compliance rules and regulations when this amount of time has lapsed.

As a company, we are subject to FDA compliance rules, which are ever-evolving and so we cannot keep formulas that are in development "live" for more than 6 months from last contact point from client.

This price includes the requisite full new organoleptic analysis, water activity level testing and full nutritional database analysis for up-to-date labelling, and one complete additional box of sample test bars from our innovation kitchen. This price also includes the requisite new FDA compliance review on packaging. 

Please note: if YouBar's innovation team believes this recipe will need to undergo new express efficiency testing, then the cost to perform this efficiency testing will be an additional $500, and will not be optional if it is considered necessary. 

Our team is sometimes able to provide a six month additional 'buffer' to this timeframe and so -- if your account has been active within the last 12 months (but not the last six months) please email Emily at to see if this fee can be waived. Please note that this is never possible when accounts have been dormant longer than 12 months.
