What is product innovation?

Simply put, is the opportunity to create white space, chart a new path or introduce a new category. As a food product development agency, Brandettes is focused on helping brands like yours find and build a leadership position within the white space. It’s not only about developing something new and original, it’s also about taking what’s already there and making it significantly better. While a brand may not be the first to enter a category, with a great food product development agency and some serious marketing savvy, yours can be the brand to improve upon an idea and capture that coveted market leader position.

Benchmark innovation is a challenge no matter what industry you’re in, especially within CPG. Shelves in the grocery aisles are crowded with a variety of options and there’s a lot of noise, it’s true. As we work with food or beverage brands, our food product development agency finds a competitive audit essential to identifying viable white space in the pursuit of product innovation. We use data, combined with industry expertise and a healthy dose of trend research to uncover and drive forward opportunities for true innovation.

And that’s just the development side. On the customer side, we know there is a barrage of info coming at them from a multitude of digital channels. Constantly changing customer expectations is something our food product development agency navigates regularly. In many categories, the info overload and crowded market are fueling a demand for greater personalization, or the ability to market, advertise to, and even develop goods or services that suit individual consumer preferences. These market shifts and pressures continue to throw brands off their game — driving uncertainty and reactivity rather than deep understanding and responsiveness. That’s where Brandettes comes in. As a food product development agency, we know the customer and their needs are changing, and it’s our job to come to the table with actionable solutions.

How do you harness great product innovation for your brand?

Yes, the market is crowded, but we’re confident, as your food product development agency, that white space will always exist. Working with Brandettes food product development agency to identify customer needs and then developing the best solution for it can drive substantial growth in your business. How we innovate — our mindset, processes, and methodologies — makes a huge difference not only in accelerating the profitability of your innovation but in the long-term adoption of it in the market.

How can Brandettes help support our brand's innovation and overall product development?

Outsourcing your development to Brandettes’ food product development agency can bring countless benefits and cost savings. Working with us can alleviate significant pressure on your team and brand. While there are no “tricks” to effective development, the secret sauce has everything to do with great management. Doing the work up front and crafting a process with accountability is, really, the only way to get it done with a degree of ease. Our team of experts, including chemists, designers, and manufacturing partners are accountable for our shared goals and objectives, and we bring our food product development agency expertise to the table to drive progress.

The first step is research; a thorough understanding of the market and where, exactly, you are hoping to fit in or stand out, is essential. This applies to the product concept, yes, but solid direction always involves a pricing strategy as well. Major frustrations bloom when cost-prohibitive projects are benched at the end of a development cycle. To avoid this happening to you and your brand, Brandettes’ food product development agency develops a solid price position that can then be worked back into your core costs, packaging, and labor.
