Concept Development

Our concept development service focusses on taking your idea and delivering an appealing, commercially viable end-product. We work closely with you to refine your product providing our expertise and advice regarding everything from ingredient selection through to recipe formulation and production process.

Innovation

Spending time researching and evaluating “the next big thing” can be time consuming and costly.

We want our customers to have access to the latest innovation in flavour, colour, texture, process, salt reduction, fat reduction, yield improvements etc. That is why we have ingredient technologists focusing on, searching out and reporting back to the business with all the latest information so our customers keep up to speed in a fast paced and ever changing industry.

Process Development

Our process development service is aimed at newly launched and established products. We will take your existing product and analyse each stage of production. Our team of technologists will provide advice and suggestions to help improve the process by speeding up production, cutting costs or improving the general quality of the end product itself.

Product Matching

Following industry trends is a key part of business within the food industry. Our matching expertise allows us to quickly and efficiently analyse a successful product from the market and provide a solution for emulating that product whilst keeping to your guidelines (ingredient declaration, salt content etc.) We can take an existing product line and match it, even offering a superior alternative to add to your portfolio if required.
