Sensory Evaluation

Sensory Evaluation

Course Overview

Our one-day workshops in Sensory Science aim to give delegates an introduction to sensory evaluation for food and drink. Sensory evaluation provides delegates with the ability to understand the key sensory attributes of their products and how these relate to consumer acceptability. It also has a key role to play in new product development, shelf life testing and quality control. The risk of product failure can be minimised if appropriate sensory testing is carried out.

This introductory workshop is aimed at those who are new to sensory science and wish to learn about how to describe and measure the sensory attributes of products with a view to improve and introducing innovation to their product development and quality assurance approaches.
