This development package is ideal for any company that has already launched their own nutrition brand, and already has an original recipe with production in place at another co-packer, but would like to move their production into our facility.
This price includes the full process for bringing one custom recipe (for one flavor) in-house, including in-house formula testing and analysis (details below), and compliance review for packaging.
First, you'll work with our R&D team to make any necessary alterations to your formula in order to ensure that it will run well in our facility. This often (but not always) involves some slight recipe reformulation in order to make it possible for your formula to run on our large scale equipment.
You will receive 1 prototype bench sample (8 servings) during the in-housing process. This will come with a complete database nutritional analysis, organoleptic testing and water activity testing.
Then, after your professional formulation in-housing work is complete, you'll work with our compliance team to finalize your customized packaging to ensure adherence to the most up-to-date food regulations.
This price includes two hours of work from our compliance team and one round of prototype samples made in our innovation kitchen, and no refunds are available after work begins. Additional hours of innovation work are always available on an hourly basis at a charge of $225 per hour (not credit-able towards any future production). In addition, this price includes utilizing any ingredients on our master ingredient list. An additional fee applies for us to source ingredients not on this list.
Please note that the $3,900 payment is totally CREDITABLE towards a first production order of at least 25k units of this particular flavor as long as it occurs within 12 months of the process instigating.
