Want to get paid to taste food products?

Wednesday, 14th November, 2018 4:57pm

Ever wondered how that new food product arrived on the shelf of your local supermarket and why some products taste better than other similar products?

Well, food manufacturers and processors use consumer taste panels to taste their own and competitors’ products on a regular basis – which is called consumer assessment.

Everybody is familiar with wine or cheese tasting and, believe it or not, the same process applies to all food products whether yoghurts, sausages, jams or soft drinks are involved.

Consumer taste panels allow manufacturers and retailers monitor product quality, competitor products, consumer preferences and help improve their products in todays’ competitive retail environment.

Taste panels also allow food producers research new product ideas, flavours and recipes and track consumer trends in relation to diet, health, packaging, ingredients etc.

Innovate Solutions specialise in food consumer research, with taste panels nationally, and are now recruiting taste panellists for a well-known international food manufacturer in the Cork area.

No experience is required as training is provided, and Innovate are looking for consumers who are free for a few mornings each week to join the panel, and who would like to participate in an enjoyable and interesting environment.

Panels meet for two hours per morning, which is ideal for school moms and dads, and panellists get paid for tasting the products and also during training.

So, if you fancy something tasty and different contact Innovate Solutions directly on 01-6770643 or email Ula at for more information.
