This item is exclusively for our clients who currently have a finalized formula for custom protein bars with us, but have had no activity on their account for 12 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 "live" for more than 12 months from the last order date.
Please note that this cost does include us making any changes that are required for FDA compliance reasons. However, it does not include the cost of making any adjustments to the recipe for non-compliance reasons (ie; changing client desires).
This price includes the requisite full new organoleptic analysis, water activity level testing and full nutritional database analysis for up-to-date labeling, and one 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 due to the time-lag, then the cost to perform this efficiency testing will be an additional $500.
