The ttz Sensory Laboratory is your company’s competent partner, providing support throughout the entire product cycle: In product development, quality assurance and in marketing.
The ttz Sensory Laboratory uses consumer tests to establish the sensory acceptance of products. In this way, the financial risk entailed in the market introduction of new products is reduced. The statements made by sensorially trained testers (panelists) give the enterprises important clues for product development, quality assurance and marketing. The recommendations help food manufacturers to make a realistic comparison with competitive products and to occupy market niches systematically. The correlation of sensorial and analytical data facilitates to a wide extent an objectification of the individual sensations experienced by the testers.
The service range also includes professional sensorial training for enterprises‘ personnel. Know-how regarding the methods and evaluation processes used in sensory testing upgrades enterprises‘ competence and forms the basis for in-house quality management. By way of example, we develop solutions for the following questions:
- Do organic products taste different to conventional foodstuffs?
- What correlation is there between a sensory iampression and a food‘s ingredients?
