"The sensory service supplied by LIT was well organised and coordinated and the final report was well presented and on time. The results and conclusions were clear and concise. I would have no hesitation in recommending them for further sensory work." Carbery group

"The research allowed us to test new product ideas to ensure that only those products with proven potential are developed. Developing the wrong products can be expensive and a challenge for many producers. Access to a trained sensory panel ensured a consumer perspective to minimise risk and guide us on our innovative pathway." Garrett Landers 2012.
