Sensory and Consumer Research Center

The Sensory and Consumer Research Center is a full service consumer research facility offering both qualitative and quantitative research in addition to consulting and project management. With staff experienced in testing a wide range of food and other consumer products, the center can work with clients to meet all of their objectives.

The Center is located at the K-State Olathe campus, just minutes away from some of the most densely populated areas of Kansas City. We are continuing to grow a large database of consumers of all ages and demographics, to meet all recruitment needs.


Participate in a study

We are continually seeking consumers interested in sharing their honest opinions about food or consumer products. We offer daytime and evening testing times as well as studies that are tested at home. Consumers of all ages are welcome.
