INNOVATION LAB

PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

Approach us with an idea, formula or a prototype. We flesh these out into tangible products that resonate with target markets. 

PROTOTYPING

Building culinary prototypes in our development lab and commercial kitchen is an integral part of an agile, iterative, test and learn process. This service often precedes a more formal benchtop product formulation process. We take any starting point and make prototypes to demonstrate functionality, taste, texture or other product attributes.

PRODUCT OPTIMIZING

Need help perfecting the color, texture, or flavor of a product? We troubleshoot specific issues and suggest the the best process for commercialization.

PROCESS EVALUATION 

A good product needs the right production process. We help identify the best process or advise how to improve on a current one.

TESTING

Test. Perfect. Scale. 

NUTRITION LABEL

Nutrition labels are an important part of a finished product and need careful attention to make sure they meet legal requirements and accurately reflect the ingredients and nutrition of a product.

SHELF LIFE TESTING

We provide testing and optimization for all products whether shelf stable or refrigerated.

SENSORY EVALUATION

But does it taste good? We conduct taste tests and regular evaluations throughout the development process to help answer the most important question. 

COMMERCIALIZATION

Ready to scale-up? Whether you will be starting small batch production or going directly to a comanufacturer, we’ll optimize your recipe for commercialization, help source ingredients, and identify a suitable co-packer.
