Smith Food Technology Approach to NPD
1. Our team includes
experienced, commercial and academic career technologists and food
research experts with know-how relevant to the client brief.
2. BSFT's own experimental product development kitchen is flexible
and versatile for initial product concept samples and early formulation
work and, importantly, cost estimation.
3. Booth Smith Food Technology takes development of product and
process forward to pilot stages, field trials, storage studies,
test marketing and launch using access to fully equipped and state
of the art development and pilot facilities in UK and abroad (or
in the clients own facilities) as specialist or particular demand
4. Commercial and practical, BSFT offers a pragmatic and often rapid
and empirical solution to produce quick results for marketing departments
desperate to obtain early product launch.
5. When the need arises for fundamental or science based research
or some pilot equipment we use our good connections with academic
institutions, food science and research establishments and some
public funded bodies whose resources we respect and harness.
