What is Food Product Development?

Food Product Development is the process of creating new food products or improving upon existing ones. At Profile Products ours is a comprehensive process starting with concept development and market research, resulting in recipe creation, testing and evaluation, and culminating in production and market trials. We work closely with customers to create custom recipes that reflect exactly what they are looking for in a functional culinary product. Our goal is to create food products that are not only delicious and nutritious, but also cost-effective, sustainable and profitable for our customers.

Steps to develop Food Products

Our Product Development team works closely with suppliers to ensure that we have access to a wide range of high-quality ingredients to create a unique product tailored to your exact requirements. Flavour, colour and texture are all important parts of the evaluation process and we do our utmost to ensure that your unique product matches the sensory profiles you have requested.

Our team regularly reviews current market movements and trends; we then apply these insights to product development to identify and create product lines which will complement and enhance your current product portfolio.

Based on each specific development brief, the team of in-house food scientists develops a product concept before conducting extensive bench trials to fine-tune the product formulation. We work closely with customers to ensure any bespoke product meets their specific requirements, be it taste, texture, suitability to dietary requirements, absence of allergens or a specific functionality.
