Based in Northern California, Mindful Food Consulting provides product development services to small and medium sized food companies. We specialize in product formulation and scale up to industrial ingredients and processes, from the bench right through to package design and production start up.
We combine a unique set of skills and talent that is very broad based. Comfortable with all aspects of the product development process, we have directed the development and start up of food products all around the world and all around the store. This means you can depend on solutions that are creative, technically competent, well informed, and based on real world experience.
Below are examples of the types of services we offer:
Mr. Mindful was modeled after his niece's pencil top eraser by Scott Wiley, mechanical engineer, robot designer and eclectic artist. Mr. Wiley creates paintings and drawings in a variety of mediums as well as sculpture and jewelry from found objects.
Mr. Mindful, thinking deeply, ponders the myriad of possibilities in a juicy red apple. The apple, always a symbol of complex simplicity, is even more so today. Is the apple organic? Genetically modified? Hybridized? Irradiated? Should it be? Does it matter? And in what form shall the apple best be eaten? Fresh and whole? Peeled? Cooked? Juiced? Dried? Frozen? Sulfited? Applesauce? Apple pie anyone?
