Pilot R&D specializes in making food delicious at any scale.  We pair an endless supply of creative ideas with our unique blend of culinary and food science expertise to develop and adapt products people crave.  


Whether you're a large, mature food company or just starting up, we can partner with you to realize your ideas and bring your products to market.

We have a bespoke model and customize our projects to each client and their precise needs. For some that means working to conceptualize, prototype, and scale a new product for retail production.  Other times we will work with you to adapt existing products to address current food trends and changes in consumer demand.  We work seamlessly with your internal research and development, product and innovation teams, or we can work independently as an outsourced innovation and development engine, in either case to take the insight and ideas prevalent in three star Michelin kitchens and adapt them to the larger food retail market.
