Institute of Food Technologists launches product development bootcamp

The Institute of Food Technologists (IFT), a nonprofit scientific organization committed to advancing the science of food and its application across the global food system, announced today that it has launched a Product Development Bootcamp designed to help improve skills and knowledge, accelerate new product development, and improve the success of new products.

IFT’s Product Development Bootcamp is a comprehensive, 10-module course that will better equip food and beverage professionals with the knowledge and skills necessary to excel in the dynamic and competitive world of product development. Ideal for everyone from the product development novice to the product development veteran needing a refresher on the basics, the course offers valuable insights, practical strategies, and real-world examples taught by top experts to accelerate and enhance product development.

“The product development process can be a long, arduous process. From the moment a product opportunity has been identified through the launch of that new or modified product, time is one of the most valuable resources a product developer has. That’s why IFT developed the Product Development Bootcamp, to teach and reinforce time-saving approaches that give product developers the right tools to efficiently overcome challenges and bring products to market safely and effectively,” said IFT chief science and technology officer, Bryan Hitchcock.

Each module will help learners better understand how to:

  • Leverage Consumer Trends
  • Ask Better Questions
  • Communicate Effectively to Marketing
  • Approach Product Formulations
  • Optimize Cost & Quality
  • Source Ingredients     
  • Avoid Allergen Contamination in Your Product Design
  • Avoid Food Safety Issues in Your Product Design
  • Approach Shelf-Life Testing
  • Scale-Up Smoothly

Upon completion of the course, learners will not only earn an IFT Product Development certificate but will also gain year-round access to resources and tools to help them continue their product development journeys.
