Can sensory science affect your product development?
There has been huge disruption within the food and drink industry, as we have heard through our earlier episodes of Table Talk. Consumer demand for more sustainable and healthier products is on the rise as consumers look to shift their dietary habits to more plant based and meat free alternatives.
Industry are meeting demand with an abundance of new product development and innovation in plant based, alternative proteins/ meats and healthier options.
