About this food manufacturing agreement

This agreement is for you to send your recipes and ideas to a company who will refine the recipe, send samples to you for approval, pass your stringent tests, comply with national or international standards and ultimately make up to your order. It could as easily be used for any heavily regulated product like cosmetics or drinks or sanitary products.

We cannot hope to think up the specification for every possible product. We leave it to you to provide your specification for design, finished product and standards to be achieved along the way.

Great Service

Quality of sample text made me overcome my initial hesitations to use online legal docs. The full document is definitely high quality. It required a few adjustments to our specific case but these were quickly done and the notes were very helpful.
