This item is exclusively for our clients who currently have a formula for custom protein bars in development with us, but have not placed an order for bars within the previous 12 months. At YouBar, we rely on our clients to place their first bar Purchase Order within 12 months of formally 'mastering' their custom recipe with the R&D team, and then to continue to place at least one PO for at least 5k bars at least once a year.
This is the cost to re-activate the recipe vis-à-vis FDA compliance rules and quality assurance regulations when more than 12 months has lapsed. As a company, we are subject to various compliance rules, which are ever-evolving and so we cannot keep formulas "live" for more than 12 months from the date of either mastering the formula, or last producing the formula.
This price includes re-starting the R&D process and requisite full new organoleptic analysis, water activity level testing and full nutritional database analysis for up-to-date labeling, and two new boxes of sample test bars from our innovation kitchen. This price also includes the requisite new FDA compliance review on packaging.
Please note: This does NOT include the cost of efficiency testing ($500 for express once formula is complete).
