Call to a consumer research

What? We are looking for volunteers to taste and evaluate frozen plant-based berry products. This test will last about 30 minutes. This consumer survey is part of Food Valley project and aims to gather consumer opinions and perspectives about the test products and to assess their acceptability.

Why? We are interested in your opinions and evaluations on the test products. This is a unique opportunity to affect the product development and the supply on the market. In the food industry, consumer data can also be used as a tool in business and marketing.

Who can participate? Volunteers should be international men or women, who eat frozen plant-based berry products and are between 18 and 65 years old.
