Our research panels
Insights lead to better results
A lot of marketing and sales effort in the food service sector is still happening based on gut feeling. A good dose of experience and a certain amount of acumen can take you a long way at times.
But without in-depth knowledge of your customers, your next innovation – that important campaign or new commercial approach – is more of a ‘lucky shot’.
The average marketeer, brand manager or innovation manager has never run their own restaurant or snack bar. If you want to achieve a successful innovation in an informed manner, it’s best to survey the target group. “Het Nederlands Kokspanel” (The Dutch Chefs Panel) helps you to do this.

We are in direct contact with end users via our own panels in the Netherlands and Belgium. And so are you!
