From Product Concept to Completion

Through careful analysis of your product market place we will identify the drivers and trends and offer suggestions on “the next big thing”. Utilizing our development facilities we will create product concepts and samples for your evaluation. These samples may include existing ingredients or new bespoke ingredients developed by our in house flavourist for your application.

As food flavouring suppliers, we use a process of modifications and reiterations we will refine the product until you are happy with it’s performance. HoF can then assist you with production set up, and hand hold through product launch. We will then remain as your NPD partner to help with product enhancements and developments throughout the product life cycle.
