Research and Development
One of the most prominent features of Flavour Creations is its Research & Development (R&D) capabilities. Through significant investment in innovation, R&D has firmly established Flavour Creations as world leaders in the fields of nutrition & well-being. Recognised as pioneers in the dysphagia management industry, Flavour Creations has a proven track record to deliver functional concepts and first-to-market innovative product solutions. Flavour Creations is tracking to become a premier Queensland new product development hub, with the rapidly expanding R&D department recently enjoying the expansion to one of Australia’s most impressive, state-of-the-art laboratories in our new facilities at Tennyson, Queensland.
The R&D department comprised of Food Technologists, Nutritionists, Microbiologists and Dietitians possess extensive cumulative experience across a broad scope of expertise. Our R&D team can transform your idea into a viable product from the laboratory to mass production. The underlying focus on ‘maximising nutrition per mL’, with sustained research and formulation emphatically separates our product range from our competitors ‘me too’ product strategies. Our extensive development laboratory and pilot scale equipment ensure successful commercialisation of concepts. Flavour Creations offers a complete research and development service, which covers all aspects of the product development process from idea conception, through raw material procurement, formulation, sensory evaluation, shelf life studies and finally commercialisation. Food integrity and food safety is of the highest priority throughout the entire product development cycle, supported by a team of CSIRO approved and AQIS registered Thermal Validation personnel onsite.
We work closely with leading consultants and experts in texture modification, nutrition and speech pathology to ensure product development continues to be dynamic and revolutionary. To deliver innovative products, our R&D team stays abreast of advances in functional ingredients with established and proven benefits, whilst ensuring our competitive advantages in meeting price expectations. And this, along with cutting-edge manufacturing technologies and new packaging concepts, allows us to continually develop innovative product solutions.
Flavour Creations is a fully HACCP certified facility and is authorised to produce:
