What can I ask? 

  • Our network can assist with all healthy food related queries and problems. For example market insights, sensory, ingredients, manufacturing, nutrition, labelling, claims, shelf-life, food safety, analysis, packaging... 
  • This option is best for simple problems, i.e that require one area of expertise.
  • Best option for when you need to get quick insights from the right expert.

 

What will the expert responses include?

In response to your question, at least three experts will provide insight on:

  • How to solve the problem 
  • Who else to ask for insight
  • What to do next if it doesn't work 

 

How long will it take? 

  • Expect to hear a response from us within 1 working day (we may need to clarify the question before it goes to experts)
  • We're aiming to have responses from experts to you within 2-3 working days.

 

How much does it cost?

 

This service is guided by the community Topic Leader, a trusted intermediary that manages confidentiality and the quality of expert responses. There are no costs for this service while we undertake beta testing for this site.
