A Unique Data-driven, Holistic Approach . . .

Unlike traditional consulting firms, who specialize in one aspect of the market, e.g., market research or new product tracking, we take a multifactorial approach to actionable recommendations. We integrate key learnings about your products and/or business objectives; with the current state of scientific/medical knowledge, consumer attitudes/behaviors, competitive/market activity, financial projections, legal/regulatory requirements, and media/activist pressures.

Unique Time Tested Tools


For nearly 25 years, our TrendSense™ Predictive Model allows us to predict optimal timing for the mass market and health food/specialty channels, potential market size, degree of sustainability, separate fad from trends; and determine the lifecycle position of health/nutrition trends, markets, issues, ingredients, conditions, and terms.

Getting Ahead of the Curve, which features intelligence from the TrendSensetm Model has been a regular feature in Nutraceuticals World magazine since 2009.
