This item is exclusively for our clients who currently have a formula for custom protein bars in development 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 quality assurance regulations when this amount of time 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 last contact point. Please note that this fee also applies to any formulas that have been in the R&D process for longer than 12 months in total.
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 labelling, 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).
