New Product Development


8-9 November 2017


Members £775 + VAT
Non–members £1005 + VAT

Venue: Campden BRI, Chipping Campden

Benefits of attending

The product development process is time consuming and costly and many new products fail either to make it onto the market or only last for a few weeks. This workshop aims to provide product developers with the tools they need to innovate new ideas, screen product concepts and manage the development process thereby improving the likelihood of success.  With an introduction to the product development process from concept ideas through to scale up and shelf life trials, it is suitable for those relatively  new to a product development role or in another technical or marketing role requiring an understanding of the development process for a new food or drink product.

Typical attendees include product developers, food scientists and technologists, development chefs, brand managers and directors of small or start up companies. The course is relevant to all formulated food and drink products.

Training Course content

This course will cover the development process from idea generation to formulation to consumer research and scale up issues. This course offers the opportunity for delegates to work in groups to generate their own product ideas as well as get hands on experience of developing, and costing a product as well as calculating the nutritional composition and potential nutritional claims.

Key topics include the importance of new products to a company, idea generation, sensory science for new product development, feasibility, shelf life issues, consumer research and scale up.

• To provide a comprehensive introduction to the development of new food and drink products
• To give an opportunity to put into practice knowledge gained during the course in the hands on development of a new product.
