Our Bespoke Market Research Software

Whilst a number of companies use Mintel as a tool, Foodmaker noticed the it didn't give enough indepth information about sausages & burgers we required to predict flavours accurately; we needed something that had it's finger firmly on the pulse and so FREDA was born.

FREDA is a unique market trends analysis tool developed in house and used only by Foodmaker and our customers. We're building the most comprehensive database in the UK and Ireland showing the launch of new products in the industry.

FREDA includes:
  • Burger & Sausage ranges on sale in major supermarkets throughout the UK
  • Analysis of flavour leading categories such as snacks and crisps to capture flavour trends
  • Added to and updated weekly
  • Full Analysis of product positioning, claims & ingredients
As a Foodmaker customer you will have access to our research; hopefully this will help you plan developments, identify new areas you can compete in and ultimately grow your business. Try FREDA for yourself and run a limited report here.
 

Spotting the New Trends for Our Customers

Foodmaker's development specialists will interpret the data from FREDA which makes up the majority of our Forecast document.

To enhance and verify our knowledge of the food industry trends, Foodmaker have also partnered with a dedicated market research company who have a network of trend spotters globally. Our forecasts feed from the information from around the world, along with the assistance of a Development Chef, we ensure our customers have the best possible knowledge.

Development Chef

We keep on trend with our team of development chefs that bring the latest foods and tastes right into our lab.

We use various creative cuisine and hospitality trained chefs to create the latest magical dishes that are trending just now.

Our latest chef session highlighted that the following trends:
  • Retro is back.... for example Chicken Kievs
  • TV programs such as Masterchef are creating interest in more adventurous activities in the home
  • Street Food from Morocco is making traction with the British palette
  • Vanilla is being used more and more...
 

Provenance

Seasonings are often the most important ingredients in worldwide cuisine; by imparting their essential zesty flavours, they create the depth of taste that ultimately determines the success of any finished dish.

As seasoned pioneers, the authenticity integrity of all our seasonings is of utmost importance to us. As such, we set out to source the outstanding ingredients of genuine importance to us.
