Freshness is very important to consumers when choosing food products

We put freshness to the test with a research project involving over 800 consumers and the result was clear: if food tastes like it has been freshly prepared, it tastes better.

But in today’s fast-moving world, it is not always possible to prepare a meal or snack from scratch and serve it immediately.

So, what about those times when convenience is the priority? Learn more about revitalising the eating experience of convenience food.

At our Givaudan’s Chef’s Council event in New York, we explored the freshly prepared eating experience with some of the world’s leading chefs and discovered that a few key elements can enhance consumers’ perception of freshness:

  • Vibrant ingredients which engage all the senses and which can be tasted individually
  • Preparing a recipe in a particular order
  • A single signature ingredient which contrasts with other ingredients Givaudan’s Chef’s Council in New York
