This item is exclusively for YouBar Clients who wish to order their packages (pouches, boxes, bags, cartons, etc) from a non-approved 3rd party company. This cost covers the full package material review by YouBar's QA Team, and the necessary FDA compliance paperwork required in order to introduce this new material into our kitchen (ie; proof that the packaging doesn't include non food grade materials in it - like lead in the ink). In addition to that, it covers the cost of us running the material through our machinery (if applicable) to ensure that it doesn't jam the machine, or determining how much labor would be required if non-automated.
What we require from you to do this:
- 10-50 sample packages (number depends on packaging type - please ask the YouBar team for exact number for your product).
- Assurance that your proposed company meets our condition of being a food grade package manufacturer.
