States that increasingly food companies in all product sectors are recognizing the potential benefits of applying a systematic and effectively managed product development process, along with supporting techniques such as sensory evaluation. Outlines part of a project which set out to fill an identified gap in the market for a good quality, smoked processed cheese. The main methods of incorporating a smoked flavour were trialled and assessed through sensory evaluation, using an in‐house, semi‐trained sensory panel, as well as a consumer panel, which considered the final products. Results clearly highlighted a preferred product, incorporating a liquid smoke flavour. However, although the product has been developed successfully, the potential negative connotations associated with this concept may also need to be considered prior to launch.
