Summary : Product development is the lifeblood of the food industry, from refining an established product range to developing completely new products. It is, however, a process fraught with risk that often ends in failure. So what then are the keys to making the process a success? Drawing on a wealth of experience gathered over 40 years, Food product development provides the answers. The first half of the book examines the four core elements of product development:- the business strategy directing product development; the various steps in the product development process; the knowledge required to fuel the process; the need for keeping the product development focused on the consumers needs and aspirations. The second part of the book looks at managing the product development process in practice with four case studies of successful product launches. It also discusses how to evaluate and improve the process to make future product innovation more successful. Filled with examples and practical suggestions, and written by a distinguished team with unrivalled academic and industry expertise, Food product development is a essential guide for R&D and product development staff, and all managers concerned with this key issue throughout the food industry. Provides comprehensive coverage of the complete product development process Includes a range of international case studies from various sectors of the food industry Written by a distinguished international panel of experts

Summary : Brand owners are in crisis. Consumer trust is at an all time low. Over 95% of all consumer product launches in the packaged goods sector fail to achieve their goals for success. This book gives a clear answer to why success rates are so low in the consumer packaged good industry and lays out a roadmap for product innovation - to make ideas successful. This book will inspire the reader to make a paradigm shift in how they approach product innovation - to be driven by the science of consumer behavior. The basic premise for this book is that emotions are at the root of all consumer motivations. Therefore, an innovation process focused on identifying how to turn up or down emotions that drive behavior will lead to product success. The applications of this process will be presented with several product success stories that show that understanding consumer behavior leads to deeper emotive connectivity, a broader playing field for differentiation, and speed to market. Using case studies and real-world examples of product launch successes and failures, Behavior Driven Innovation is a must-read for those involved in product development, consumer research, and marketing. Explores the role that emotion plays in consumer decision making Case studies of product successes (and failures!) and the role behavioral understanding played Provides insights into understanding the "whys" of consumer behavior, using a pull strategy to rapidly learn what consumers want, and designing for emotional impact Provides a blueprint for the creation of nimble innovation strategies

Summary : Like much of SMEs research, innovation studies of small enterprises have commenced later and are less numerous. The focus of such studies remains high-technology enterprises, which continue to attract both academic and popular interest, oblivious to the innovative endeavours of people in traditional low-tech industries. This book attempts to address this imbalance through a comprehensive analysis of innovation in this largely neglected area. Based on case studies of seven small innovative food companies, this book presents an in-depth analysis of innovation in the Scottish food and drinks industry and unravels a lesser-known approach to effective low-cost product innovation, which is simple and economical, yet elegant and successful. Using careful data collection and rigorous statistical testing, the analysis and findings in this book address a wide spectrum of interests: academics in business schools, policy makers in governments and executives and entrepreneurs in food and other low-technology sectors.

Summary : Giovanni Galizzi and Luciano Venturini The food industry has been characterized by several and profound changes in its structure and competitive environment in the last decades. Although it is not a research-oriented industry, there is no arguing that technological change and particularly product innovations are crucial determinants of ftrms' performance and In recent years food manufacturers have accelerated the consumers' welfare. development of new products, by using new ingredients, processing and packaging techniques. Thus, food markets are increasingly characterized by competitive environments where relevant flows of innovative products, quality improvements and new technologies provide new consumption trends, food habits, market opportunities and ftrms' strategies. However, the issue of product innovation in the food industries has been rather neglected by economists. Few works have explicitly addressed this issue. After the pioneering book of Buzzell and Nourse (1967), one can count few contributes. Connor (1981) examined the empirical determinants of new food products introductions. Padberg and Westgren (1979) provided crucial insights about the nature of food innovation through their notions of consumer inertia, technological redundancy and incremental product innovation. Some case-studies provide useful empirical materials, but they are generally sparse.

Summary : A Handbook for Sensory and Consumer Driven New Product Development explores traditional and well established sensory methods (difference, descriptive and affective) as well as taking a novel approach to product development and the use of new methods and recent innovations. This book investigates the use of these established and new sensory methods, particularly hedonic methods coupled with descriptive methods (traditional and rapid), through multivariate data analytical interfaces in the process of optimizing food and beverage products effectively in a strategically defined manner. The first part of the book covers the sensory methods which are used by sensory scientists and product developers, including established and new and innovative methods. The second section investigates the product development process and how the application of sensory analysis, instrumental methods and multivariate data analysis can improve new product development, including packaging optimization and shelf life. The final section defines the important sensory criteria and modalities of different food and beverage products including Dairy, Meat, Confectionary, Bakery, and Beverage (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), and presents case studies indicating how the methods described in the first two sections have been successfully and innovatively applied to these different foods and beverages. The book is written to be of value to new product development researchers working in large corporations, SMEs (micro, small or medium-sized enterprises) as well as being accessible to the novice starting up their own business. The innovative technologies and methods described are less expensive than some more traditional practices and aim to be quick and effective in assisting products to market. Sensory testing is critical for new product development/optimization, ingredient substitution and devising appropriate packaging and shelf life as well as comparing foods or beverages to competitor’s products. Presents novel and effective sensory-based methods for new product development—two related fields that are often covered separately Provides accessible, useful guidance to the new product developer working in a large multi-national food company as well as novices starting up a new business Offers case studies that provide examples of how these methods have been applied to real product development by practitioners in a wide range of organizations Investigates how the application of sensory analysis can improve new product development including packaging optimization
