MITANI DEVELOPMENT
CENTRE

Mitani Manufacturing is underpinned by the Mitani Development Centre, where a dedicated in-house product development, food science and safety team works on every product that passes through our facility.

The team not only ensures that all products have the required flavour and sensory profile but are also able to be scaled up to mass production, while retaining the quality and integrity of the product. This commitment to quality and food safety protects our client’s brands.

The Mitani Development Centre operates in the following areas:

Blue Sky Innovation

By getting to know our clients and developing strong relationships, we’re able to develop and present new products to support the growth of our client’s businesses. This ‘blue-sky thinking’ approach comes from constant innovation and identifying new and emerging food trends. Our combined R&D and production capabilities enable us to create new markets and add value to existing markets.

New Product Development

Responding to a client brief, the Mitani Development Centre team develops new products designed for a specific need or requirement. Every product produced by Mitani is developed and refined by the Development Centre Team, who work on producing small batches of the product to meet the client brief before then scaling up for mass production.

Ongoing Product Improvement

Working with the production team, the Mitani Development Centre team continues to explore ways to improve and enhance products for clients. Every product in production is continually reviewed to ensure it’s meeting the highest standards.

Concept Development



If you have a food concept, the Mitani Development Centre has the tools and expertise to assist you on the journey to a commercially successful venture. Whether your concept is a new idea you are starting to explore or an existing product you are looking to innovate and improve, the MDC can help.
 
Our first step is to understand your product, its end use and the customers you’re feeding. We look at everything the product needs to be and what it cannot be. We believe all successful projects start with a strong brief.
 
The brief is built on the following considerations: product application, flavour profile, formulation requirements, packaging, projected volumes, product distribution, price point. If you do not have all this information, the MDC can assist with developing the brief.

Product Development



Once the brief has been finalised, the project has a solid foundation to move onto the product development phase. Based on the brief, the MDC team formulate recipes in line with your product requirements and our manufacturing capabilities.
 
Product samples are generated at both the test kitchen and trial production levels. Our testing also includes end use application and ensuring the product is everything it needs to be.
 
The MDC aims to hit the brief first time, every time. In the event of further development being required, the MDC undertakes a comprehensive customer consultation process to seek solutions to any gaps in our development journey.

Product DEVELOPMENT
Manufacturing



A robust product development system provides a solid foundation for Mitani to leverage our strengths in manufacturing. We offer a diverse range of product options through our three core manufacturing competencies of Frozen Extruded Products, Mayonnaise and Dressings, and Dry Blend & Pack.

Customer Support



Mitani customer support extends beyond the product development phase of our relationship. We engage in two key customer support initiatives;
 
- The Watching Brief : The MDC Team maintain a watching brief on all products and are continually reviewing adherence to our own high standards.
- Blue Sky Thinking : We conceptualise products with our customers in mind, allowing Mitani to maintain a development culture of renewal and innovation. This helps to maintain our position at the forefront of food development and manufacturing in Australia.
 
Mitani can execute these initiatives through our well-resourced and highly experienced development and Sales teams.
