The Fundamentals of Product Development


Product Development is a system of techniques designed to advance items of an existing recipe. Our team is here to help formulate a product with improved flavor, end use, or expectations. We can help adjust:

  • Texture
  • Color
  • Aroma
  • Consistency
  • Flavor
  • or Physical makeup

Revisions made to the batch of samples mimics the process applied when scaled and manufactured to ensure the best results every time.

Developing for Food Safety


The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) are responsible for assuring foods sold in the United States are safe and properly labeled. At Chairmans Foods, our dedicated team of professionals stay up-to-date on current legal requirements for food labeling. We understand the intricacies of these regulations and are here to help ensure all products comply with federal laws.
