“We wanted to build perspective on colour trends - what does it mean to consumers in the context of food & bev categories, which colours are more popular in which product category, what are the consumer motivations and what are the ingredients trends linked to colour. Tastewise can track colour trends in social discussions, and this gives us a unique view on the latest insights on colour trends in food & beverages”.
Tatiana Luschen, Consumer Sensory Insights Manager Innovation & Foresight Europe, Taste & Wellbeing
“Tastewise is the only system that actually allows us to gauge where a flavor is in terms of its evolution cycle.”
