Sensory and Consumer Research in Food Product Design and Development
Sensory and Consumer Research in Food Product Design and Development by Howard R. Moskowitz
Book DescriptionThe food and beverage industries today face an intensely competitive business environment. To the degree that the product developer and marketer - as well as general business manager - can more fully understand the consumer and target development and marketing efforts, their business will be more successful. Sensory and Consumer Research in Food Product Design and Development is the first book to present, from the business viewpoint, the critical issues faced by sensory analysts, product developers, and market researchers in the food and beverage arena. The book's unique perspective stems from the author team of Moskowitz, Beckley, and Resurreccion, three leading practitioners in the field, who each combines an academic and business acumen. The beginning reader will be introduced to systematic experimentation at the very early stages, to newly emerging methods for data acquisition/knowledge development, and to points of view employed by successful food and beverage companies. The advanced reader will find new ideas, backed up by illustrative case histories, to provide yet another perspective on commonly encountered problems and their practical solutions. Aimed toward all aspects of the food and beverage industry, Sensory and Consumer Research in Food Product Design and Development is especially important for those professionals involved in the early stages of product development, where business opportunity is often the greatest.

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. In other cases, the marketing is spot on, but the product itself does not perform. This title explores this inter-relationship and the inter-relationship of the key disciplines essential for marketplace success.
