Phasing the opening of our research facilities
The government’s roadmap for the easing of restrictions over the coming months enables us to plan how we intend to re-open our proprietary sensory and consumer research facilities in Reading and Nottingham.
Our current timetable is:
19th April: open the facility for CLTs and for Sensory Profiling studies, limiting capacity to four respondents per panel room.
Basis for change: gyms, hairdressers etc. open from 12th April.
17th May: increase capacity to six respondents per room.
Basis for change: six people allowed to mix indoors.
21st June: increase capacity near to, or completely to, ‘normal’.
This later step will be reviewed and managed carefully to reflect the changes in society as a whole, the opinion of the public and our own staff.
Basis for change: all restrictions relaxed.
In the meantime, we continue to conduct sensory profiling, product and packaging consumer research remotely via in-home sensory panels, in-home CLTs and HUTs throughout the UK and world-wide.
