Who and why?

In the world of taste we’re used to getting to know consumers according to what they choose and consume.

We study the reasons for their choices and the taste preferences that guide them.

We’ve already conducted 2 million tests and conduct thousands of new ones every month, in more than 40 countries around the world.

Our solutions are created for companies that operate in the world of taste, in different and ever more various product categories. The first that we’ve analyzed are wine, beer, coffee, bread, and tea.

We offer innovative solutions for:

  • profiling your clients

  • developing your business and your products

  • optimizing their positioning

  • creating a new experience for your customers and a unique relationship with each of them.

Our solutions for Brands

Consumer ID.Sensorial Research

Profile your current and future clients.

Objective: innovate your clients’ and consumers’ experience through a digital tool that’s capable of recommending products which correspond with their sensory preferences, simultaneously providing innovative and engaging content.

Our digital tool also helps companies to get to know their clients, collect information, and potentially develop products that are more in line with their preferences.

Our solution works by focusing on the user: people answer questions related to their taste preferences and daily dietary habits, in an understandable and non-technical language.

Our sensory profiling approach:

1 – Qualitative Stage

Strong academic skills, a team made up of sensory analysis and food experts, and a methodology that’s both human and scientific: these elements serve as our qualitative introduction to the sensory world.

This first stage studies the uses, habits, and trends within the F&B industry of a specific culture or country in order to formulate a series of hypotheses that are tested out in the subsequent stage.

2 – Quantitative Stage

This stage is characterized by the collection and subsequent analysis of more detailed information, from which characteristic fragrances and tastes emerge, as do the trends that differentiate consumers according to their specific country.

This data is integrated with the initial hypotheses and the taste test is reworked and perfected in order to respond to the unique characteristics and needs of the reference market.

3 – Implementation Stage

This stage is characterized by the collection and subsequent analysis of more detailed information, from which characteristic fragrances and tastes emerge, as do the trends that differentiate consumers according to their specific country.

This data is integrated with the initial hypotheses and the taste test is reworked and perfected in order to respond to the unique characteristics and needs of the reference market.

Consumer ID.Sensorial Branding

Optimize and position your products.

From a global perspective, the sensory know-how developed in multiple markets makes it possible to show companies their product platform or brand’s positioning within the cluster of taste preferences present in the reference country or market. Once the prototypes or existing products have been analyzed, the best position and target audience are recommended.
