The FiveStar Development Process

We leverage our experience and category knowledge to deliver unmatched speed to market.

Click on each stage of development to reveal our process.

We start by listening to our client and finding out exactly what they are trying to achieve with their new product. First and foremost we want to define what success will look like in our client’s eyes. This is where we also assess the competitive market, where this item will fit and what we will need to provide to assure its success.

With an understanding of our desired outcome we can then apply our experience and market knowledge to create prototypes and imagery to test with consumer panels. Our new product development team consisting of; market researchers, research chefs, food scientists, and dieticians will collaborate to create a product that meets any set of desired, taste, visual and performance criteria.

Most good ideas look great to the developers but what’s most important is the reaction those ideas get from their target audience. Do they value and appreciate the concept as we expect them to? Are there changes we can make to the product to enhance its acceptance? Testing with focus groups is critical at this point to provide objective and actionable feedback

Knowing we have a product that aligns with our client’s and target consumer’s expectations we are ready to launch. Our product development cycle follows industry best practices. However, it’s the speed we work at and the experienced team we work with which allows us to bring products to market faster and more efficiently than other companies.

Why is FiveStar the preferred choice of major brands and retailers?

Food Safety

Every detail, from our policies and processes to our facility’s designs, is put together with our management team’s commitment to food safety. All of our products are evaluated for potential hazards with a plan in place to address those hazards and make sure our products are wholesome and safe.

Food Quality

Ensuring quality begins by securing the best raw materials at the peak of their freshness. Once those ingredients arrive, temperature control, handling and preparation protocols maintain that freshness. Skillful preparation and state of the art packaging are the final touches.

Facilities

Our USDA production rooms and kitchens were designed in collaboration with one of the top Food Safety experts in the world. We have dedicated Maintenance, Sanitation and Quality Assurance teams that work together to maintain a pristine working environment.

Capabilities

We have separate frozen and fresh production rooms with a very wide variety of packaging solutions, from trays, bowls, and pans, to cups, pouches and drums. We are SQF Level 3 and Organic certified and hold a 99.9% Silliker Audit score allowing us to serve a multitude of needs.

Nutritional Expertise

Years navigating precise USDA guidelines for school food has given us a high level of expertise in designing foods to deliver precise nutritional contributions. Our team of Registered Dieticians, Chefs and Food Scientists can meet your nutritional targets.

Experience

With more than 16 years of continued growth and success to date we have a proven track record. We have a unique balance of youth and seasoned individuals which creates a blend of the most recent tactical and technical education with proven business acumen.

Reliability

Serving schools has honed our mindset to never let a customer down. If we were to miss a school delivery, children would go hungry, and that’s just unacceptable. That mindset is what drives us to meet or exceed every one of our customers’ expectations for quality and on time delivery.

Cost Effectiveness

We have built a business on serving high volume customers with state of the art technology and maintaining very low overhead loads. Those investments in technology and streamlined, just in time, manufacturing translate into savings for all of our clients.

Efficiency

Investments in state of the art equipment and just in time delivery of raw materials allow us to run an industry leading rate of production per square foot. As our productivity has increased, our overhead continues to decline. That efficiency creates value for all of our clients.
