In order to display the USDA Organic Certification Logo on your product, YouBar must submit the appropriate documentation for your custom formulas to Oregon Tilth, the professional certifying body that has certified YouBar as an Organic Food Manufacturer.
Oregon Tilth's review process is based on a standard 'order of receipt,' but they offer an "expediting fee" of $350 that they say allows your product to 'jump the line' and be reviewed faster. At YouBar, we don't offer expediting fees ourselves. We do everything as quickly as we can no matter what. However, because Oregon Tilth does offer this, we like to allow clients to opt into it if they want to. In our experience, it typically shortens the time for the Oregon Tilth review process by about 4 weeks (ie; from 2-3 months down to 1-2 months).
