Are you interested in participating? As a participant. you may be asked to complete online questionnaires or surveys about your food habits, liking and consumption, in-person taste tests, virtual and augmented reality scenarios, sensory testing, focus groups and more!

One of our most popular long-term study is our consumer snack food testing! As a tester, you will be invited to participate in various consumer product tastings and exciting research trials – previous tests have involved chocolate, rice and strawberries!
