CUSTOMER TAILORED MATCHING & SUPPORT
It's a Match
Matching is an important activity in food flavour developmnent. Not all flavours are born through trend spotting and innovative ingredients. Many of the most successful flavours are ones that have been matched. Foodmaker have the ability to match a flavour from various sources. One of your current seasonings, an off the shelf finished product or even a flavour from other sectors.
We will work with our customers when matching a product to understand your aims. This maybe to achieve a reduction in cost on a like for like basis, or if your supplier is unable to maintain supply, we can help by offering an alternative source.
When working with us on a Matching project, our customers will benefit from:
Our Matching Technology
A lot of the technology we use during our matching process is a secret, but what we can tell you is that Foodmaker use a unique powerful technology to reverse engineer the declaration of a seasoning. This software analyses the declaration and gives our Development Specialists accurate initial information of the ingredients and levels in the recipe. Using this software reduces a lot of the trial and error that is involved at the beginning of a match project.
To further enhance our process we use sensitive lab equipment to analyse component parts, from multi-layer sieves to titration and specific gravity tests to identify the raw materials.
The Foodmaker Development Specialists are analysing and interpreting this data at every step of the way. The 60 years of experience within this team, along with their sensory skills, allows them to identify further developments required in the recipe to achieve an exact match.
EvaluationTo ensure our match is accurate before it is presented to the customer, Foodmaker will run various evaluation techniques and assess the seasoning. We have put a lot of time and resource ensuring the evaluation techniques we use are enhanced by scientific protocol to guarantee what we present to the customer is right. Our sensory techniques include:
Using our Pilot Plant to enhance the matchOur Pilot Plant has many different uses. We will always aims to conduct a bespoke presentation of the matching project we have been working on for you. This will include presenting the match in raw material form and in finished product.
In the pilot plant Foodmaker can handle 40kg of mix at a time. Creating these finished products within a production environment, rather than kitchen trials, gives you a true reflection of our matching capabilities on a larger scale. Find out more about our facilities here.
