COURSE SYNOPSIS
Product concept from the business perspective – differentiations between product item, line and mix, product life cycle, basic consideration for new product development or improvement; strategies and sequence of steps in test marketing; product failure/elimination; feasibility report preparations.  Students would use specific practical projects in the laboratory to obtain experience in developing information and applying it to decision making as often encountered in the food industry.  An integrated application of basic knowledge of chemical, physico-chemical, engineering, sensory and management principles to the processing, preservation and storage of foods will be required.  A detailed report submitted at the end of the project would contribute a major part of the students’ assessment in this course.
