Risks and challenges

The packaging machine that we are purchasing is a specialized piece of machinery that will take 3 months to build. We are starting to work with the vendors now to make sure that we can take control of the machine as fast as possible but there is a risk that delivery will be delayed and you will receive your sample bars later.

In these circumstances we will delay mailing other items such as T-shirts and bags to avoid duplicating postage costs.
