There is a scientific discipline and art behind food tasting and sensory evaluation. The process is used to determine how a consumer reacts to a product using the five basic senses (sight, hearing, touch, taste, smell). These senses interact with each other subtly and broadly. An instant impression is made with the first bite of a new food item or taste of a drink.
We conduct benchmark evaluations to establish sensory differences and similarities ensuring that products appeal to all five senses to increase the product’s likelihood of becoming popular and profitable.
