Hello 8bottle Backers!
We wanted to take a moment to apologize for the delay in delivering your rewards. We understand how eagerly you have been waiting to receive your products, and we're truly sorry for any inconvenience this has caused.
Unfortunately, we hit a huge roadblock with our current supplier, which caused a significant delay in the project. However, we're excited to announce that we've pivoted to a new supplier whom we have more confidence in.
This change caused a huge delay, and we want to be honest with you about what happened. Our previous factory wasn't capable of completing the last 10% of the project, and as a result, they did not pass the quality control of the management consulting firm that we hired in February 2023.
Over the past few weeks, we've been working tirelessly with the consulting management team and the new factory supplier to get the project back on track. We're happy to report that we have a clear path forward, and we see a light at the end of the tunnel.
We wanted to share some good news of our patent being approved and issued on April 4th, 2023. You can find the patent here with this patent number: 11617460. This doesn’t help the timeline of delivery but hopefully shows you assurance that we are in full plans to complete the project and our commitment to the community of 8bottle to deliver our promised technology to our backers orders.
We want to assure you that we're doing everything in our power to get your rewards to you as soon as possible. We're incredibly grateful for your patience and understanding during this challenging time.
Thank you for your continued support, and we'll be sure to keep you updated on our progress.
We’ll be in touch again soon.
The 8bottle Team
