Our contract establishes obligations for your company, your manufacturers, and for the Orthodox Union (OU). Here are some of them:
The Schedule “A” is the list of the authorized raw materials. It has the name of the plant in the upper left corner. If a raw material is not classified as “Approved” on the Schedule “A,” you are not authorized to use it in the plant. Please contact me if you want to add raw materials to your Schedule “A.” We will work quickly to serve you!
The Schedule “B” is the list of finished products. You are not authorized to place the OU trademark on any product that is not written on Schedule “B.” Even if the product is written on Schedule “B,” you may not place the OU trademark on the product unless its brand name is also written on the Schedule “B.” Please contact me if you want to add finished products or brand names to your Schedule “B.” We will work quickly to serve you!
