If at first, the idea is not absurd, then there’ s no hope for it

(Albert Einstein)

Our idea is developing food products for custom-made brand concepts and strategic brand extensions.

Food trends is what we focus on. They reflect our attitudes towards life driven deep and lasting changes in culture and society.

Food plays an important role in modern lifestyles: food is not only fuel and nutrition. Through food we try to express our identities and beliefs and use it as a means of self-realisation and differentiation – “we are what we eat”.

Food products may emotionally enrich brand equity: they may deeply resonate with your customers on a level of indulgence.

Food for brands supports extending your brand positioning and will help you to grow your business.

A brand must be lived, loved… and savored.

Food for brands brings delectable brand concepts to life. We offers a 360° consultation: from strategy and concept development to implementation and marketing of the food products. Depending on your needs, we focus on individual stages or on the entire launch process, performance monitoring and further development if wished.
