Concept Research in Food Product Design and Development by Howard R. Moskowitz

Book Description

Concepts are critical for the development and marketing of products and services. They constitute the blueprint for these products and services, albeit at the level of consumers rather than at the technical level. A good product concept can help make the product a success by guiding developers and advertising in the right direction. Yet, there is a dearth of both practical and scientific information about how to create and evaluate concepts. There has been little or no focus on establishing knowledge bases for concepts. Concept development is too often relegated to the so-called 'fuzzy front end'. "Concept Research in Food Product Design and Development" remedies this inattention to product concepts by providing a unique treatment of concepts for the business professional as well as for research scientists. The book begins with simple principles of concepts, moves forward to methods for testing concepts, and then on to more substantive areas such as establishing validity, testing internationally and with children, creating databases, and selling in new methods for concept testing. The book combines a 'how to' business book with a detailed treatment of the different facets of concept research. As such, the book represents a unique contribution to business applications in food, and consumer research methods. The book is positioned specifically for foods, to maintain a focus on a coherent set of topics. "Concept Research in Food Product Design and Development" appeals to a wide variety of audiences: R&D, marketing, sensory analysts, and universities alike. Corporate R&D professionals will learn how to create strong concepts. Marketers will recognize how concepts are at the heart of their business. Sensory analysts will find the book a natural extension of their interest in product features. University students will understand how concept research is a critical part of the 'consumer-connection.' "Concept Research in Food Product Design and Development" is the definitive, innovative text in describing how to create, analyze, and capitalize upon new product concepts.

Integrated Approach to New Food Product Development by Howard R. Moskowitz Integrated Approach to New Food Product Development, Hardback (June 2009)

New products often fail not because they are bad products, but because they don't meet consumer expectations or are poorly marketed.

This title explores this inter-relationship and the inter-relationship of the key disciplines essential for marketplace success.
