Ginsters investigation.

Extracts from this document...


Design brief: - My aim is to produce/adapt a pastry product to add to Ginsters already existing line of products. I will choose four different pastry recipes and use research on the pastry's to discover my final design to adapt and add to Ginsters pastry supplies. I have decided to aim my pastry product towards teenagers because I will find it easier to discover what types of pastry teenagers enjoy and to add a healthy natural pastry that teenagers will enjoy and it will provider them with nutrients and healthier options than other products using preservatives and additives.

The sensory analysis of my original designs created a guideline to base my final development on and this was an important part of my brief to create a useful addition to the Ginsters product range and this was useful to teenagers. I was disappointed by the information from Ginsters as I could have done with more information about products that already exist in the range and the popularity of them to base my design to make it popular to the public as well as a different idea for Ginsters to add to their range. My final design was carefully decided through a system of analysis' and research to provide a perfect addition for Ginsters, and I believe I have done this as my product is small in size, adds a different taste to the Ginsters range making it a unique product for the scale, also it can be easily refrigerated and last for long amounts of time for such things as home refrigerating and shop refrigerating and it is an easy design to produce in mass production for a company such as Ginsters so they can attract more of the public to the item. ...read more.
