At JSR, we recognise that animals not only need to perform on farm, but also need to give an exceptional eating quality experience to the consumer. The Food Quality Centre was established to undertake research for retailers and to be used as an invaluable test bed for our own products.
Located at the Yorkshire Wolds Cookery School, which was established by JSR in 2011, a trained taste panel provide food analysis services to the food industry on a variety of products.
The team are led by Caroline Mitchell who has an MSc in Meat Science and Technology from Bristol University.
Taste panellists are trained to give objective product assessment on taste, colour and smell with accompanying statistical analysis.
We can offer three types of taste panel service
In addition, Caroline and her team provide a comprehensive range of services for supply chain optimisation and management, as well as offering advice on welfare and production in livestock systems. Work has so far been carried out on pork, beef, chicken and lamb as well as peas and pies.

You can hire the services of the Food Quality Centre for yourselves or your company. There is 4 Star B&B accommodation on-site and conference facilities close by. We can help customise a programme to achieve your objectives.
