Transform a top-rated recipe into a commercial recipe by navigating the new product development process from idea to production. Attain the gold standard in plant production by employing the scientific principles of experimental design and simple quantitative analysis (pH measurement, viscosity measurement) to ensure repeatability and acceptability. In this workshop, you will have the opportunity to work in the Product Development Laboratory to reverse engineer a product and analyze the creative process of concept to commercialization.

At the end of the program you will be able to:

  • Identify and define new technology in the kitchen, including molecular gastronomy and the latest cooking techniques and equipment,
  • Discuss the use of flavours and flavour sensations considered for new product development,
  • Translate the new product development process from idea to production, including: technical feasibility, development of the gold standard, target, cost and pricing structure, converting recipes to formulas, prototype development and testing,
  • Analyze and explain principles of experimental design, statistical analysis and simple instrument tests to measure sugar content, viscosity and acidity.
