This is the second podcast in a sensory sciences series in collaboration with the Sensory & Consumer Sciences Division. Host Bruce Perkin and guest speakers Becky Bleibaum and Anna Leachman will be discussing tools to get rapid and reliable consumer feedback on products. This conversation highlights the advantages of consumer research, what consumer acceptance is and why it is important, how tight timelines and budgets impact outcomes, and more.
How integrating sensory science in the collaborative process contributes to product success.
As many companies are often looking for a competitive advantage to improve product success, it is critical that sensory scientists become an integrated part of the conversation. Sensory evaluation can help predict product success when implemented appropriately. This podcast will help listeners understand the value of sensory science and how it can help their organizations succeed.
