Food innovation with real world impact

Our knowledgeable team of food consultants and product developers look at every aspect of your product from ingredient selection to the final characteristics of your product. Physical structure, stability, shelf-life and flavour are all part of our food product development process. We also carry out informal sensory studies to evaluate and optimise key product characteristics. Mouthfeel, texture, visual appeal, smell and sound are all part of the eating experience and need to match consumer expectations. Our food product development team takes every aspect into consideration to keep your food product innovation on track. Through our dedication, we’ve created numerous award-winning products that continue to delight consumers and drive market innovation forward.


We understand that speed is an essential aspect in NPD, which is why we offer rapid prototyping and client innovation days to accelerate concept realisation.


We can also advise you on health and nutrition platforms. You may want to achieve a specific nutrition label declaration to enhance product appeal. Or respond to high-profile health initiatives and legislative change by reformulating. Either way, our food development experts can guide you through the challenge. 


And when it comes to scaling-up, the same detailed approach applies. We use our extensive knowledge and network of well-equipped pilot plants to run trials, using these insights to ensure a successful outcome.


Our expertise covers food product development in all its forms. Whether you are at the beginning of your NPD journey or looking to develop a clean label productreduce or replace sugar in your products or reformulating to stay relevant, we’re here to give you the support you need in your food product development journey.
