Food and drink product development

Froghop helps clients develop their food and drink products. We offer a range of services to take your product from idea to launch. We have experience across the whole product development process and can help you with either part of the process or a complete outsourced solution.

Develop your product prototype

Froghop can take your idea or product brief and turn it into a product prototype with a recipe that meets your requirements – nutritional, product claims, desired shelf life, ingredient choice, flavour profile and fitting consumer requirements. The process can begin with a simple a phone conversation – contact us to start the process.

Source ingredients and packaging

Froghop can advise on ingredient sourcing to meet quality, cost and scale requirements – from kitchen based start-up activities to factory production. Specifications and costs are provided as part of this service. Froghop can also source appropriate packaging for your product to maximise shelf life and consumer handling (and cooking if appropriate).

Ensure the safety and stability of your product

Working closely with a local laboratory, Froghop can advise on product safety through ingredient choice, microbiological criteria and test for product stability. We can also improve your product through formulation and processing modifications.

Fix and improve your product

If your product is too expensive, not retaining its quality over shelf life or not achieving the desired post-consumer cook characteristics, Froghop can help.

Guide your product from kitchen table to factory

Froghop can guide you through this complete process via consultancy as needed or hold your hand along the full path.

Identify the right manufacturing route

How do you ensure that the right amount of product is made at the right time? Do you know how production will scale-up as sales increase? Froghop can help you plan and execute your manufacturing plan and find which manufacturer is right for you. We also help clients by auditing manufacturers to your requirements.

Make your recipe production-ready

We can help you with the sourcing of ingredients and packaging up to full production scale. We will ensure that production requirements are met – allergens and processing of the product formula, for example. Working with you and the manufacturer, we set the initial processing criteria and refine them for final production.

Advise on product claims and product labelling

Once the product is finalised, Froghop can advise on how to achieve product claims on the packaging and final labelling of the product.

Ingredient applications

Looking for ideas and formulations for your new ingredient? Need to demonstrate the benefits of your ingredient in different product types? Froghop can generate recipes and prototypes to demonstrate to your current or potential customers.

Create your product documentation

Froghop can help you prepare all the documentation your product needs – including labels, specifications, HACCP and technical product presentations.
