Sensory analysis

Target: analyse your product from a sensory perspective, compare it and improve it

Methodology: research in a state-of-the-art sensory lab

For: companies looking to launch a product (nutritional or otherwise) or to improve an existing product

What do consumers think?

  • I have developed a product with fewer added sugars. Sensorily, is this similar to the version with added sugars?
  • What is the difference between my product and that of the competition?
  • I am launching a new product. What do consumers think?
  • How can I improve the recipe, production or storage of my product?

In may cases, marketing is focused on the ‘first moment of truth’, on how you ensure that a consumer chooses your product. However, the ‘second moment of truth’, when the consumer actually consumes your product, is just as important. This experience always determines whether or not the consumer will choose your product again.

We would be delighted to help you. We test your product and give appropriate recommendations to ensure that your product gains favour with consumers.
