Our Development Process
Step 1. Capturing the BriefAlthough it seems obvious, understanding your requirements at an early stage is the first vital step in getting the right product developed for you.
Our experienced technical sales team will work with you to ensure we get your brief right.
Development can start completely from scratch, come from one of our existing product bases or be an improvement to one of your existing products.
At this stage not only will we discuss your flavour requirements but the full product overview including desired packaging, unwanted ingredients (e.g. hit lists), specific targets (e.g. FSA 2012) and any other requirements you may have.
Step 2: Developing the SampleUsing our Spidergram and all of the other information we have gathered from you, our NPD team combine this and work their magic! From Regulatory Compliance through to our Flavourologists and Sample Blenders, the team use the freshest ingredients to create the seasoning that matches your brief. Their creation is then assessed by an internal Flavour Panel.
We understand that time is always of the essence and we aim to complete all sample requests within 48 hours. For complex requirements that require specialised raw materials we may require a little longer.
Step 3: Sample EvaluationOnly when the above is all complete do we release the sample to you for your evaluation. Depending on your requirements, our prefered approach is for us to either come to your facility to taste the sample with you, or for you to visit our development labs and taste your sample along side the development team.
Capturing your feedback at this stage is as important to us as the initial brief. We provide sample evaluation systems that assist you and your team in assessing our creation.
Feedback from your trials can be captured in person by one of our technical sales team, online via our secure logged in samples section or on paper to be posted back.
Our KnowledgeWe stay ahead of the competition by many innovative actitivities; and knowledge is one of those.
Our Knowledge systems are made up from various data sources; from the FDA, market research, suppliers, customers etc. Our main systmes comprise of:
Sensorary Evaluation TechniquesWe use a range of sensorary techniques to make sure that real science backs up the heart behind our flavour creations. This sets us apart from the competition. Get you coat, we are going home.
The Spidergram™The Spidergram working example. Its is our unique piece of technology which visualises all organoleptic aspects - taste, visual, aroma and texture.
Using this we can visualise an existing product and understand what adjustments you need to create your ideal blend.
Try it:..As you move the sliders for the different tastes, it overlays a new spider which then our flavourisists can try to match.
Packaging OptionsOur packing machines offer extremely accurate fill weights allowing us to pack in standard or specific batch sizes from 0.5 to 20kg in blue sachets, ripp n flow sacks, or in pails
