Clients & Their Goals
Our Client, a leading producer of frozen foods in Europe, had several successful meal products for customers in the healthcare and care home markets. However, some of their customers’ patients suffered from medical conditions—such as dysphagia and other nutritional disorders—that made eating conventionally-prepared meals difficult. Based on their internal research, our Client had tried to accommodate patients’ needs by developing their meals to better serve these people with nutritional disorders. Their efforts were unsuccessful, however, as our Client’s R&D team lacked a detailed understanding of the ways that specific nutritional disorders cause difficulties for patients. Additionally, investigating the full varieties of innovative food processing technologies that they could use to produce more appropriate meals was a challenging task for their internal team.
Our Client asked us to quickly provide them with expert, actionable advice regarding ways that they could create new meals that would better serve patients with nutritional and clinical needs.
