SENSORY WORKSHOP

‘Fundamentals of the sensory analysis & the verification of the sensory sensitivity’ training

Every company aims to develop a unique products to please the customers and secure their loyalty. However, majority of the companies are not successful with meeting that aim.

Product matters

Just have a closer look at the market. Can you see how many products are similar to each other? That is a result of copying products offered by market leading companies. With competition rising everyday companies must do their best to create outstanding innovative products.

Quality matters   

You must be aware that the brand itself does not guarantee a success of the product. Customers’ demands are growing and they want their voice to be heard. Unhealthy and poor quality products are quickly vanishing from the market. Today, beyond the brand, the product must provide quality.

Sensory analysis gives you an answer

The importance of the sensory analysis in the development of the products is crucial. Especially, but not inclusive, in the Food and Cosmetics industries, where sensory analysis should be used both to develop new products, and to monitor the quality of the products already implemented on the market.

Objective organoleptic evaluation in practice

During sensory workshop ‘Fundamentals of sensory analysis & verification of sensory sensitivity’ participants will acquire basic knowledge in the field of sensory analysis, and will also be introduced to the secrets of performing proper sensory evaluation under the supervision of an experienced sensory expert. They will have also a unique opportunity to participate in a professionally prepared tasting session combined with an objective organoleptic evaluation.

Sensory tests

A huge advantage of sensory workshop is the opportunity to participate in professional sensory tests to verify the individual sensory sensitivity ended by the individual sensory evaluation, which will be prepared and sent afterwards.
