Food Scientist for Hire


We all know and love the Mars brand. Who hasn’t eaten a Mars in their life and just stood in awe while the dreamy taste takes over their entire mind. The same goes for the Mars drink. One sip is enough to take you into a magical land far far away. I bet that almost nobody realizes how much effort and passion the creators had invested into perfecting the recipe.

And one of those creators was actually our founder Nicolas!

Nicolas has worked as an R&D Technologist in one of the most entrepreneurial units of Mars globally within a cross-functional team for 5 years and has created some of the most known dairy drinks on the market today, including Mars, Galaxy, Twix, and other protein drinks in the UK.

He has also played a crucial role in the development of Snickers, M&M’s, Skittles, Bounty, MilkyWay and Maltesers. For the last 5 years, he has launched more than 60 products across various product categories in Europe and UK.

But his passion for creating our favourite foods and drinks didn’t stop there.

He was also actively engaged in many other areas of product development. Some of them were the creation of all the technical and raw material specifications required for different product categories, liaising with contract manufacturers for all technical matters and maintaining relationships, preparing product labelling and nutritional information for artworks as well as organising laboratory, pilot plant and factory trials, and even looking after the R&D team’s finances and ensuring all budgets are met

With his knowledge and background, he has now founded the Food Scientist For Hire company where he is channelling his passion for food and beverages, making his clients happy and fulfilled.

Below are some photos of him inside the R&D headquarters.
