to effectively create the right product.
To reach “the bliss point” is to achieve ultimate satisfaction. With food, it means to pinpoint the exact spot where it makes you feel satisfied. If a food product reaches the right balance between sweetness, saltiness and fat, it will satisfy customers in a way that keeps them coming back for more. And this gives the product the potential of becoming a bestseller.
I have chosen to cooperate with cookbook writer and chef Trine Hahnemann. She is known in Denmark and internationally as an outstanding and non-compromising product-creator, who has developed her own brand. She has helped and inspired big and small companies in their work on the texture and flavour of food when creating new products. Together we have developed four valuable workshops, that will help you find and make “the right product”:
Workshop 1: Developing ideas based on the latest food trends
A diverse group of chefs and experts will co-create while working together. Added value for you: 10 fresh ideas on sustainable products, line extensions or concepts in your particular product category.
