The Food Perspectives, Inc. Story

From its incorporation in 1990 through 2003, Food Perspectives, Inc. (FPI) company focus was on fielding consumer tests. Sales strategies rested on the company's solid reputation in the industry for reliably providing quality consumer research at a great value.

In 2005, FPI invested in key team players who brought a depth and breadth of industry experience including research design, management and an understanding of consumer research and its role in corporate R&D efforts. During this time FPI sales strategy evolved from a passive, execution-focused strategy to a forward-thinking, value-added partnership with R&D and marketing professionals.

Since 2005, FPI has continued to invest in quality people and facilities resulting in:
  • A 12,000 square-foot research facility that caters to the consumer testing needs of CPG companies
  • Increased technical and fielding staff
  • Improved respondent recruiting techniques
  • Updated technical capabilities
