Froghop helps clients develop their food and drink products. We offer a range of services to successfully take your product from idea to launch, ready to scale-up.
We have experience across the whole product development process and can help you with either a specific part of the process or a complete outsourced solution. We work with established food businesses, startups and scale-ups.
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.
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).
Working closely with a local laboratory, Froghop can advise on product safety and compliance through ingredient choice, microbiological criteria and test for product stability. We can also improve your product through formulation and processing modifications.
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.
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 create your manufacturing plan, define your requirements and find the right manufacturing partner for you and your product. We also help clients by auditing manufacturers to your requirements.
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.
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.
Froghop can help you prepare all the documentation your product needs – including labels, specifications, HACCP and technical product presentations.
