Success Story

Raspberry Amaretto Preserve Named Best New Product at SOFI Awards

David Evans Foods was tasked with redeveloping the trend-flavor profile of award-winning Robert Rothschild Farms to celebrate the origins of the brand’s story and the single ingredient that started it all – the raspberry. David Evans Foods’ R&D team developed hundreds of unique flavor and category combinations that were tested within a national digital panel to accurately determine which flavor profiles were the most appealing and enticing to consumers. From this diligent research, the very first Raspberry Amaretto Preserve was created and submitted into the rigorous sensory paneling process. After measuring the quantitative results across numerous metrics, the product was appropriately tweaked and refined, and beat every benchmark in a blind tasting. The remarkably flavorful preserve was then entered into the 2016 SOFI Awards and was selected as one of ten Best New Products for the year out of over 5,000 entries.
