What is Food Product Development?

In a nutshell, food product development is a series of stages that companies work through when modifying an existing product or when developing and bringing a new product to market.  The process is complex and requires a significant amount of knowledge and experience to be successful.  The amount of time spent on each stage depends on multiple factors (available resources, expertise, etc.).  

The benefit of leveraging experienced consultants is that they can bring years of experience, significant knowledge and expertise, and additional outside resources when needed.  This can add a lot of efficiency and value.
