Froghop are food product development consultants. We help individuals and companies take their food and drink products from idea to finished product. Our clients include start-ups, SMEs and multinationals.

Helping you navigate the food product development process

Typically we engage on a project to help clients navigate the whole lifecycle. From idea to prototype, then scaled up for retail. We also deliver specific services within the process if you need some extra support – recipe development, product labelling, shelf life testing or reformulation, for example.
