The client, a chef and owner of a food company in New York, was looking for an expert who could formulate the recipe of a refrigerated sauce that would have a stable shelf life of 9-12 months. He wanted the expert to run shelf life tests, evaluate sensory profiles, and advice on factors responsible for spoilage.
The client posted his job on Kolabtree and received two bids from food scientists within 24 hours. He chose to work with Dr. Megan Fisklements, who had previous experience in formulating and stabilizing sauces. The client was able to ship his specialized ingredients to the freelancer using which she could formulate the recipe accurately. The project was successfully completed within a month.
