These are short-term projects that are specifically aimed to introduce food businesses to technologies, processes, approaches, or procedures that may improve their operations. The project may involve using quick tests to determine the sanitary condition of their lines or developing a protocol to insure consistency in their operations. Dr. Saulo encourages process development to improve operations and to facilitate product development. If the client requests product formulation, Dr. Saulo requires that the formulation be initiated by the food business.
