Pilot scale processing (con’t.) Challenges at this stage include: Not enough communication between food scientists and engineers; lack of shared language Raw material variability (one variety to another, supplier to supplier, season to season) Pressure to cut expenses on this seemly “temporary” phase of manufacturing
