Innovation and Recipe Creation


Schnits works with clients to reduce back-of-house pain points, discovering recipes, and finding solutions to commercialize and scale chef creations. With an experienced team and a proven track record, Schnits Frozen Food has a dedicated Product Development and Innovation department to help you create a variety of food products at scale.

Made-to-order is at the heart of everything we do. Whether you’re re-creating existing client recipes or creating new recipes and product formulations with our extensive library of non-proprietary recipes, Schnits gives you flexibility.

Step 1 – Opportunity Assessment

What type of product are you developing? Firstly we assess your needs and goals to determine how best to help you.

Step 2 – Specification and Planning

If you plan on replicating a product, Schnits will analyse your sample to ensure an exact breakdown of all ingredients.

If it’s the commercialization of a new concept, or existing back of house practice, Schnits will work with your team to create an industrial recipe for commercial scale.

Step 3 – Product Design

At this stage, we commence Benchtop Sample Development, designing or reverse engineering your sample. A preliminary costing will be conducted in combination with sample evaluation, customer approval or re-formulation, micro testing and shelf life validation. Creating a product ready for Trial Production.

Step 4 – Trial Production

This stage ensures consistency at larger scale before moving to full production. Once product specifications are completed, preliminary pricing is approved and the first plant trial scale-up is scheduled. After the first trial, plant trial scale-up is sent for customer approval before a final review and full production.

Step 5 – Full Production

In the final stage of the process, Schnits manufactures and delivers the food solution to you or distribution partner. As perfection is an ongoing process, periodically, you may choose to make further refinements to your product. Schnits will be there to assist with any necessary modifications.
