The aim of this first scouting phase will be on finding all ingredient categories out there and providing information about these ingredients. With the info you will be able to select several categories for further deepening. Using a relatively short list of categories instead of a long list of individual components, makes it easier to gain an overview of what is out there.
The second scouting phase will consist of elaborating the information and finding all components within the selected categories. This approach creates a more tailored overview of the types of ingredients that are interesting for your application.
The market for alternative proteins is growing rapidly. They can lower carbon emissions, have fewer concerns about ethics and environmental consequences of intensive animal farming while still maintaining nutritional value and taste!
This example case provides a complete overview of all alternative proteins, 51 alternative protein sources were found across 7 concepts!
During the intake meeting we together define the scope of your challenge. What functionality does your ingredient need to have?
After the intake meeting the Findest scout will focus on finding all components on a category level. Examples will be given on specific components within each category.
In the midway meeting, we will discuss which results are relevant. You can then select one or more categories for the deep dive scouting phase.
This second scouting phase will consist of elaborating the information of the categories and finding all the relevant components within this category. Specifications, TRL, and suppliers or partners can be found on a component or category level, depending on the topic and your whishes.
Findest's goal is to provide you a tailored overview of the types of ingredients that are truly interesting for your own application. On the IGOR^AI platform you can rapidly select, evaluate and share the results with the whole team.
