Overview

This interactive course, with its balance of theory and practical, introduces the application of sensory evaluation techniques for the food industry. It focuses on measuring the sensory attributes of food, as opposed to measuring consumer opinion, which we cover in our follow-on course on Consumer Sensory Testing.

This course is suitable for a range of individuals who need an introduction, or refresher, to sensory evaluation including those involved in sensory testing, consumer testing, quality assurance and product development or anyone working alongside these industry functions.
