Our impact
Clients obtain significant benefits from working with Onorach on their nutraceutical study projects. Robust clinical studies enable clients to substantiate and reinforce health claims associated with its products and add greater impact to its marketing messages. The quality of clinical study results from phase 1 (and sometimes other phases) is also crucial for client targeting an health claim from EFSA.

Consumer Driven New Product Development
Consumer driven new product development can be a costly process and identifying the correct type of consumer and or sensory test at the appropriate stage of the NPD process can be a difficult task whilst working to a limited budget. We can provide industrial clients with transformational opportunities to understand the consumer by designing pioneering solutions to specific food related sensory issues. We have extensive experience advising businesses on what type of test will fit best your business objectives whilst carefully explaining how to interpret the results in light of future business decisions. Our goal is to be flexible and fit testing around budgets, timescales and objectives.

The types of activities we carry out:
• Central location testing
• Benchmarking
• Product optimisation
• Qualitative research (e.g. focus groups, one-to-one interviews)
• Consumer driven concept development and testing
• Trained panel descriptive analysis

We can combine statistically product descriptive and consumer hedonic sensory testing. This will enable us to understand how product characteristics contribute to the overall needs of the consumer. This enables us to identify ideal product profiles for specific market segments and to describe how current or newly developed prototypes/concepts fit the needs of targeted markets.

Our Facilities are available for hire and include:

Sensory Booths
Brand new consumer experience laboratory including 12 sensory booths, focus group room and adjoining kitchen simulation room.


Product Development Laboratory
A New Product Development lab provides facilities for pilot scale projects. Equipment includes spray dryers, extruders, micro-brewery, rheometer, texture analyser and particle size analyser.
