Research and Development
Every great product begins with a great idea. Our team can assist in product development by scaling up your existing recipe or creating a completely original, innovative product for your company.
You will consult with our food technologists and microbiologists who will work along-side your company giving hands-on scientific advice and guidance on your food product and process development. They will help identify the direction of your brand, assist in developing new product offerings, and how to scale up to production run quantities.
We will assist you to transition ‘in-house kitchen’ products to larger commercial-scale production meeting your wholesale or retail objectives. So as your business grows, we can increase our production output for you.
We also offer smaller minimum order quantities, to help you test and trial your product and ensure it is viable for your target market.
