JRA Research acquires CHEF’S PANEL

We are excited to have added to our range of services for the Foodservice/Catering sector by acquiring a Chef’s online panel. The panel is the first to have been built specifically for chefs & catering managers. The panel now has over 1,200 panellists covering all Foodservice sectors. 

The latest survey completed by panel members indicates a high degree of optimism for the Foodservice sector, with some two-thirds of Chefs & Catering Managers expecting their turnover to increase over the next year.

Research studies completed so far using the panel have included areas from testing delivered samples for new products, evaluation of early stage NPD concepts to pricing/conjoint studies.

JRA has been actively involved in conducting ad hoc research into the Foodservice market for over 20 years.

Terry Wagstaff (UK Research Director) says “The Chef’s online panel complements the broad range of existing services and methods which JRA Research already uses on behalf of numerous food & drink clients in the Foodservice sector. The availability of this online panel enables the provision of both faster turnaround and more cost-effective studies.”

It is suitable for a wide range of applications, including general usage & attitude surveys, new concept & product development, product testing, as well as recruitment for in-depth qualitative studies.

The panel is still inviting catering professionals to join and has the capacity to grow much larger to encompass the widest range of catering professionals from all catering sectors.   The panel is available for use by other research agencies or companies by contacting us. For enquiries, please contact:
