Comprehensive sensory panel services.
We offer independent sensory evaluation and sensory analysis services for food processors and manufactures. Our team of expert consultants and scientists work with clients to ensure our sensory services are comprehensive and meet requirements for ensuring products are evaluated to client and consumer standards.
We provide independent trained & untrained panels.
Independent sensory evaluation provides valuable information to food marketers and product developers, as well as quality assurance and research & development groups. Sensory evaluation panels are helpful in determining changes in raw ingredients or packaging (for cost reduction / supplier changes), product acceptability, new product flavor, competitor product analysis, correlations to instrumental analysis, or product changes during storage. Maintaining an in-house trained sensory panel in a food manufacturing facility can be difficult because time and resources are limited and internal panelists may be biased.
