Margin Optimisation: Consumer-led quality & cost management
With sustainability and cost management the talk of the board table and the breakfast table, options to maximise the use of ingredients, use alternative ingredient sources, and modify processing options are being explored by many R&D and Quality teams; a challenge that is further complicated considering the multinational manufacturing and market footprint of many operators.
How Leatherhead can help
We can help you define the quality attributes that matter most to your consumers and are key to your brand’s identity, versus those attributes which only have the hygiene factor. From this we can develop a series of objective, science-based quality parameters that are directly linked to consumer preference, but can be measured globally in a consistent manner. We can also work with you to explore options to reduce the overall cost of the product by evaluating the potential and actual performance of reformulated products.
