FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How to initiate a process to develop a new product, or product range?
The first step is to contact us to discuss your new product by phone, or email. From here we will send you a Product Brief form for you to fill up with as many details as possible. It’s quite important that we get as much information as possible at this early stage to ensure we can help create products you have envisioned.
Once we have the product brief, we analyse it and could provide you with indicative pricing.
Based on the brief, we will then progress to sample production to give you an idea of how your product would look, feel and perform in real life. A cost of NZD 185 per sample produced is charged to partly cover the chemist’s time and ingredients.
What is the lead time for a sample to be formulated?
An average project will take approximately 3-5 weeks for the first set of samples to be delivered for your review. The process can take longer if additional sourcing is needed for new or unique raw materials that we don’t stock.
Once you approve the formulation, we will provide you with a finalised cost based on the agreed formula. This cost will also give you an idea of any additional fees (i.e. filling cost, label application, etc )
We can provide more detail of applicable fees once you have decided what components your packaging will need and how they will be assembled.
We can provide information on what testing (if any) we think is appropriate prior to production.
Once the final product and pricing is confirmed an order can be submitted.

What’s the difference between Organic & Certified Organic?
Certified organic and certified natural products both contain natural ingredients. The main difference between the two is the composition of ingredients used. Certified organic products fall into one of two categories

- “Made with Organic” – 70-95% certified organic ingredients (ingredients that have been produced in compliance with organic standards)
There are also a number of membership requirements that the brand owner must adhere to that BioGro require to be met in order to use their logo. See www.biogro.co.nz for further information

True Blue Organics - Margaret Macbeth
"I first met Adipa 11 years ago when she was in Christchurch, I was searching for a company that would design and manufacture small batches of skin care products to meet the highest organic standards in New Zealand and internationally. Adipa was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and easy to work with. She was willing to use the ingredient I could supply and able to source innovative ingredients when required. Adipa is now a sub-licensee of my business. Her new facility in Dunedin, has been successfully audited by Biogro NZ for a new batch of products.
I am proud to sell products of such quality and integrity."
