My Story 

 

Ever since I was a child, I have always been fascinated by food. I loved exploring new flavours and textures, much to the dismay of my parents who would often catch me in the kitchen trying to bake a cake, even though the results didn't quite look like one!

Nutrition was my way of getting closer to my passion for food, but it wasn’t until I learnt about R&D in the food industry that I realised I could finally unleash my creativity and explore the science behind food.

This newfound understanding gave me a whole new perspective and appreciation for the effort and passion needed to produce successful food products.

Now, I want to share my love of food & science with EPICSI, and I hope it will encourage other food businesses to embrace the possibilities of flavour science.

When you know what's going on, you can really make anything happen!

It Wasn't Always Easy 

 

The food industry has a problem: many of the corporate food companies have stopped focusing on science, creativity, and quality in their products, instead opting for cost reduction.

This means poorer products for consumers, at the same price. Companies often use a single recipe and simply change the flavouring, rather than creating something new and exciting for consumers.

Furthermore, working in a corporate world doesn't give employees much freedom or time to learn, innovate and explore new ideas. 

I decided to take the plunge and embrace the entrepreneur spirit.

This allowed me to challenge myself and make decisions independently, have full control, and collaborate with customers.

Thus, EPICSI was born - a way to unleash creativity, drive constant learning, and push your own boundaries. 

Release your inner food scientist and become a culinary artist!

Empowering entrepreneurs & start-ups

 

EPICSI is the perfect blend of Epicurean and Science. 

My mission with EPICSI is to help you create & launch incredible products on the market.

I also want to provide the trainings you need to deepen your flavouring skills, push your boundaries and impress your customers. 

EPICSI's vision is to stand against societal pressures and the status quo, and keep innovating and dreaming bigger.

I want to empower individuals to create pockets of happiness, joy and excitement in their work’s life. 

As a business owner myself, I understand the journey of creating a successful venture.

Despite years of practising, I often found myself getting frustrated when I didn't take the time to think through my decisions - only to realise later that some of them were a waste of effort.

That's why I'm passionate about helping food & beverage entrepreneurs and start-ups, R&D consultant and product developers, especially those without a food science or R&D background, succeed.

My purpose is to empower people who feel like they can't do it and don't have time - but trust me, you absolutely can!

My purpose is to help you create the products you need to overcome any future issues while saving time and money.

I'm here to provide you with the knowledge and skills you need for success, giving you the confidence, creativity and efficiency to make better decisions and push your business to the next level.

EPICSI Vision 

 

So, are you ready to get creative and explore the world of flavour science? I believe that R&D and food science should be accessible to everyone - no matter their background.

Food science is fun and doesn't have to be complex at all.

I want to empower people, make flavours exciting and reinvigorate the industry, so that even the busiest of people can come home and be excited about learning something new from their products.

I understand that working in a food business is one of the most thrilling experiences out there.

From tasting new products to exploring flavour profiles and understanding texture - there's never a dull moment!

Plus, with the disruption of supply chains, financial crisis and challenging times there's lots of opportunities to be creative and think outside of the box.

So unleash your inner food scientist and let's make flavours more approachable, fun, and exciting for everyone!
