Food and drink industry training courses

Consumer and sensory science courses

Our consumer and sensory science courses cover topics such as sensory evaluation, consumer research, sensory science and food quality – as well as linking sensory attributes to brand engagement and brand loyalty.


Sensory training can help you make a product that looks, smells and tastes as it should. It helps instil confidence in product quality and reduce customer complaints. Having competent sensory assessors is essential for this. This course covers the principles of sensory science, the human senses, sensory methodology and best practice when conducting sensory evaluations. At the end of the course you will be able to recruit a sensory panel and screen new assessors. Typical attendees usually include those with basic knowledge or who are new to sensory science.
