Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"…he offers the readers a clear and thorough understanding of how the industry as a whole competes, succeeds, and in some instances fails to bring new products to the marketplace. The book serves as a valuable reference book-rich in details, historical perspective, forward-looking advice, and references. …This book delivers helpful information in a concise, organized style-bringing together diverse elements of the food industry that are all important for a new product introduction into the marketplace. …This should-have reference book for anyone involved in developing new food products working in or with the food industry. The book finishes with a sense of completeness — a well-grounded, broad perspective in the fundamentals of the new food development process in industry today. The book is well cited and supported with technical knowledge and is sprinkled with fun with the food-speak used throughout the industry."
-Journal of Product Innovation Management, Vol. 23, No. 3
