The Booth 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 requires.
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.
