Sensory analysis is a scientific discipline that applies principles of experimental design and statistical analysis to the use of human senses (sight, smell, taste, touch and hearing) for the purpose of evaluating consumer products. We bring over 30 years’ experience in sensory research to help R&D groups, marketers, sales teams and manufacturers to optimize their product characteristics.
We provide sensory testing with 15 sensory labs across eight countries within the Mérieux NutriSciences and Biofortis network. We also offer sensory testing services in 15 additional countries by utilizing local partner labs. Globally we cover all sensory testing forms including trained (QDA and Spectrum) and untrained consumer testing, discrimination testing, quantitative and qualitative testing, and sensory training. We offer central location testing, in-home use testing, and customer inceptions.
With 88 sensory experts in 15 dedicated labs on four continents, Mérieux NutriSciences offers a full spectrum of sensory services on food and consumer goods.
