  • Larry W. Hand


Phil Fletcher’s statement illustrates the many frustrations involved with product development and ultimately product success. New products are a main source of corporate growth. The objective of this chapter is to present an overview of product development in muscle food products from the perspective of a food technologist. A complete overview of product development would include various marketing, production, sales, and management discussions. These topics will not be described, but resources are available in the list of references.
