How to Hire a Food Scientist

A food scientist studies the quality and composition of food products to ensure that they are safe, healthy and meet regulatory standards. Food scientists and technologists perform a variety of roles in both research and industry. They evaluate the nutritional value of different foods, discover new ingredients and sources, and help in the development of new food products. They also help to streamline industry and manufacturing processes. 

Food startups and SMEs are often seek help from qualified consultants to take their food product to market. But what does one need to look for in a suitable candidate? Here are some tips for hiring top food scientists on Kolabtree.

Why Hire a Food Scientist

A chef may have all the ingredients needed to develop an excellent food product. However, converting a homegrown recipe into a commercial product can be a challenge. You may need help with food product development, testing shelf life stability, nutrition labelling, and more. 

While many food researchers work in traditional full-time roles, there is an increasing number of freelance food scientists for hire. This helps startups access and afford expertise quickly and easily. 

If you’re looking to launch a food product, you may need to hire a food science consultant who can help you take it to the market. Consultants are also likely to specialize in specific areas. For example, a food formulation consultant can help you source the right kinds of ingredients and optimize the consistency and texture of your product. A food chemist can help you test the chemical makeup of a product, and a flavor chemist can advise on artificial or natural flavors that you can use. 

Before you start developing your product, you may also need to work with a food researcher who can conduct market research and help you find the right suppliers to work with. 

How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Food Scientist?

As hiring an in-house food scientist can be an expensive affair, most startups and small businesses consult experts on a one-off basis. Food scientists on Kolabtree charge between USD 1500 and USD 3000 for assisting with creating a new product, however, rates vary depending on the deliverable(s), the nature of work, and whether samples are required to be physically shipped. 

Consulting a freelance food technologist on an on-demand basis can help food businesses save up to 50% in costs and time.  

How to Write an Effective Job Post to Hire a Food Scientist

Here are five things to keep in mind while creating a job post for a food scientist.

  • Scope of work: Provide a clear outline of the goal of your project and the deliverable(s) expected. |
    For example: Need a freelance food scientist near me to help develop a CBD-infused snack. Also require help with labelling according to industry regulations. 
  • Duration:  Define how long you expect the project to run for. 
  • By when you need to hire: Do you need to hire someone within a few days, weeks, or longer? Indicate up to when you’re willing to have your project open for applications. 
  • Budget: Provide a rough idea of your budget and whether you’d like to pay per project or by the hour. You can revise your budget once you discuss more with a freelancer. 
  • Skills required: While looking for a food consultant, you can narrow down the specialty you require.
