The latest from Food SA! We finalise our Competitive Assessment Panel and launch our new Members only area including a Member of logo, distributor database and Food SA Directory.
COMPETITIVE ASSESSMENT PANEL
The Competitive Assessment Panel (CAP) program was supported by Enterprise Connect has been a great success with 45 products analysed for free by a panel of experts across the areas of product development, packaging, costing, to market and nutrition.
Participants have said the assessments have provided new insights and ideas to consider in improving their products. One of those companies was Laucke who submitted their Type 00 Flour which is in product development stages.
As a result of CAP feedback, we will delay the launch of Type OO Flour to enable us to fully integrate the expert advice. CAP feedback was extremely informative, and whilst we only presented one Stock Keeping Unit (sku) to the panel, the Type OO Flour format will be rolled out and applied to approximately 6 skus. Specific feedback relating to: product size, style, graphics, message, nutritional panels, allergen statements market appeal were valuable in adapting our product to be more ‘market ready” said Darren Curnow, National Sales Manager, Laucke Flour.
We were interested in market feedback, and CAP provided a succinct, professional means of gaining expert feedback in a way which we will integrate to maximize the market appeal of our new product Type OO Flour.
