Our scopes of work

Consumer goods stimulating the 5 consumer’s senses are our core targets!

  • Food

    You want to develop a product that meets your consumers’ expectations?

    Food products present taste characteristics but also olfactory, auditory, visual and textural ones. All these intrinsic properties define food products as sensory complexes that are difficult to understand and to study. The nature of these products implies experimental and methodological constraints.

    We will help you to consider these barriers for the rest of your study.

Nos domaines d'application

    You want to know the sensory positioning of your product against your competitors’ ones?

    Cosmetic products also have various sensory characteristics and their evaluation implies, for example, to take into consideration the application way in the experimental protocol. How many times and where the consumer shall apply the product?

    We will help you to develop and to realize a study in line with your objectives and to take into account all of these complex issues.
