Food Development & Consulting Services

Our Food Consultancy and New Product Development services are driven by our customers' demands.

This can from an initial brief or, as in a Blue Sky scenario, we could also attend preliminary brainstorming sessions and carry out research to ensure that any product developed is viable and in accordance with your aims and objectives.

Either way, we will work with you from concept through to launch and be with you every step of the way to ensure your product launch is successful.

new product development

Our team of dedicated chefs and product developers have years of experience and have worked in the catering and food manufacturing industry and fully understand flavours, practices and procedures to ensure tastes remain authentic and consistent without jeopardising quality.

We have over 30 years of experience in various disciplines within the food industry. We understand the constraints and pressures our customers are under to meet costing and sales targets. We never compromise on taste and flavour!

We are constantly keeping abreast of the markets and regularly carry out taste testing and benchmarking exercises to ensure we are up to date with the current trends.

We develop our own lines for most markets but always work with our customers to develop bespoke lines specifically for their markets, whether its within the UK or anywhere in the world.

New product development can be in any category, including snacking items such as bao buns, dim sum or gyozas, fried snacking, such as spring rolls, ready meals, value added protein, as well as soups and sauces.

Our key strength is the ability to manage the complete development process.

We have a proven track record in meeting our customers' expectations and ensuring that the development process is fulfilled professionally on time, every time.

Consulting Services

In addition to complete New Product Development projects, we can provide consultancy services on a range of product related disciplines, including: 

  • Cost Engineering
    We understand the constraints food manufacturers, food service providers and retailers are under and work alongside them in ensuring any re-development of their existing lines are not compromised.

    We can make recommendations for suitable matches and source alternative products to ensure taste, flavour and quality are not compromised during the cost engineering process.

  • Technical Support
    In the constantly changing business environment, our commitment is to meet the challenges with advanced and continuous quality in product development.

    Our technical capabilities ensure that quality standards are always synonymous with food product safety and comply with all relevant legislative requirements. 

  • Nutrition and Labelling
    A fundamental part of the development process is ensuring compliance with FSA regulations. We will advise and recommend on your packaging legal obligations to ensure that you are compliant with current legislation.

  • Photography and Food Styling
    We have been working with photographers and food stylists who have worked with some of the major retailers. We will attend the shoot to ensure photographer and food stylist work in accordance with your brief and deliver the final shot to you.
