Concepting & prototyping
Once we’ve spotted an opportunity in the market, it’s time to come up with winning concepts and prototypes. We have a large array of turnkey recipes we can draw on, and our team loves nothing more than getting to work in our full-scale development kitchens where we can replicate the end consumer experience. This stage is all about demos, recipe development and tasting sessions.
Sensory Research & Sensometrics
Creating the right texture is all about the right ratio of air to fat to create the desired result, from bubbly to buttery. Globally, 67% said they were indeed keen on sampling innovative products with a fluffy or creamy mouthfeel or a chewy or crispy bite.
The success of your products ultimately comes down to consumer response, and you need to confident of a positive reception. As well as consumer and sensory panels, we apply sophisticated techniques such as growth hacking to quickly gain invaluable feedback from your target audience. We’re passionate about making your new product a success all the way from initial research to results. We can help you to tweak ingredients to fine-tune functionality, target your marketing and get your labelling on-message.
