Since its foundation in 1994 Essensor has the philosophy that there are different ways of tasting.
Technical product specialists (in a company) look differently at, for example, bread than people who have a good sense of smell and taste, or someone such as yourself.
The first group knows that the bread needs just a little bit of extra time in the oven for optimal crust color.
The sensory experts can clearly measure the bitter taste of the bread.
While you may notice that the bread tastes nice.
Essensor knows these groups of ‘tasters’ throughout and knows how they can be positioned best for your sensory question.
So that you, in the end, can make better decisions.
The best 10% tasters of the Netherlands
Essensor is the only company in the Netherlands with commercial sensory panels, which can be used in all product categories.
These panels, each consisting of 12 people, are among the 10% of people with a good sense of smell and taste of the Netherlands. They are selected (ISO 8586) and had an intensive training in various methods, protocols, product categories and speak a common sensory language.
These skills and expertises make them a highly reliable human instrument.
Essensor secures and improves the quality through continuous feedback to the panel members.
These panels can be used for questions as: Is there a sensory difference between products? And if so, how can these differences be described?
