AT OUR research and development facility at CARRD, we conduct a wide array of tests to ensure our products are consistent and of the quality that our customers have become to know and love. We have trained team who work solely on quality control, recipe formulation, menu ideation, product development, market trend analysis, and food styling/photography.
The task of quality control is one of the most important things we do at CARRD. We test all the products for exacting standards for taste, quality, and consistency. Some of these tests include measurements of fill weights and drain weights, product color variances, examining for proper texture, and taste. If a variance from our quality standards is found, we identify the problem and correct it immediately.
MONITORING OF MARKET TRENDS
We also monitor current market reports and research to identify new trends in the retail and food service markets. After thorough review, we use this information along with customer input to develop new products that will benefit them in their respective markets. Another large part of our research and development program is to perform recipe formulation and menu ideation for our retail and food service customers. We work one on one with chefs from around the world to develop recipes and menus that will showcase both our products and their cooking skills.
