Food Product Development

Our skilled food technology specialists undertake all aspects of food innovation from food product development services (food NPD services) as part of our food new product development consultancy; concept ideation, formulation optimisation, pilot trials and product evaluations through to commercialisation.

R&D Support for the Food Industry

Consumer acceptance of food products is a complex area that requires inter-disciplinary expertise. With access to state-of-the art and well-equipped pilot-scale facilities in our food testing laboratory, we are able to flexibly support your food product development (as part of our NPD consultancy/food new product development consultancy) and conduct effective scale up trials to ensure consistency and efficacy of your products before full scale factory production saving you time and money. Our food consultants are also able to rapidly prepare high quality demonstration samples for you to impress with at sales meetings and exhibitions. We can prepare a wide variety of products in a number of different food sectors.

Our food NPD consultants work with you through the whole food product development lifecycle from concept to commercialisation, from creative concept ideation to highly technical troubleshooting. Ingredients and formulation must be optimised, and products must be carefully designed so as to retain the required properties over processing, shelf-life, storage and consumption: we have expertise and capability in all of these areas, so you can either partner with us throughout development of a complete product, or support your internal team by outsourcing a specific aspect to us.

Our food NPD consultants provide flexible food new product development services that is tailored to your needs and overseen by a dedicated project manager. We always advise regular review meetings to keep you abreast of project status and progress and for effective transfer of knowledge.

Projects are always completed on a fully confidential basis.

We partner with you through all stages of the product development process:-
