RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
KitchenTown’s Research and Development team is an experienced group of Food Scientists designing and developing best in class products. From ideation to commercialization, our team is equipped with the resources and partnerships to take clients through the entire product development cycle ensuring a product that is ready for market.
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.
Need help perfecting the color, texture, or flavor of a product? We troubleshoot specific issues and suggest the best process for commercialization.
A good product needs the right production process. We help identify the best process or advise how to improve on a current one.
Test. Perfect. Scale.
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.
But does it taste good? We conduct taste tests and regular evaluations throughout the development process to help answer the most important question.
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.
