[su_spoiler title=”Organoleptic Evaluation” icon=”caret”]
This may involve comparative evaluation of products, of various manufacturers on behalf of a client(restaurant/hotel/factory) comparative evaluation of products from the manufacturer and those in store.

We have found that sensory evaluations is highly important to ensure consistent quality of products manufactured. It can be used in New product development as well and it plays a vital role in marketing when you compare your product to various similar products in the market or potensial markets.

LTL Consultants specializes in the field of organoleptic evaluations and sensory analysis. We have been assisting our clients for the past 15 years in this regard and we do have trained people sitting on our evaluation panels to ensure valued feedback to our clients.

Our analysis can consist of the following but can also be used individually depending on your requirement:
