Edinburgh Preserves

Edinburgh Preserves provide a range of preserves, chutneys, jams, mustards, sauces, pates and terrines as well as kitchenware, hampers and ceramics.

Edinburgh Preserves and Food Innovation@ Abertay (FIA) collaborated to develop new terrine products with a Scottish theme.

Initial consumer and market research at Abertay focused on establishing the most appropriate and preferred flavours of terrines. Using this information, and in collaboration with Edinburgh Preserves, a number of new recipes were developed in FIA’s development kitchens.

Sensory experts at FIA were identified from their consumer panel of over 100 and their feedback from this first range of products used to further refine the recipe. The most appropriate ingredients were also sourced so that the terrines are economically feasible.

The outcome of the Feasibility Study is three novel fully developed terrine recipes for Edinburgh Preserves.
