An end-to-end product testing service that allows you to test at any stage of your NPD at scale, with real target customers and cutting-edge analytics


Our service allows you to quickly test your products on a large scale with your key customer demographics before you have spent any money on packaging, branding or marketing. Our insights can help you with NPD, product/market fit, concept validation, and increasing sales. Our costs are inline with traditional panel studies, but we allow you to collect a significantly higher volume of data from more testers, creating value for both your NPD and marketing teams.

We do all the work for you: First we find your customers, design the trial, label and post your products. Once our testers submit their feedback via our app, we process their responses using machine learning analytics to give you actionable insights in the form of an easy to read report. As it is a remote service, it is unaffected by Covid and highly relevant to D2C brands. If you are a challenger brand, you can test your products against your competition without revealing who you are during the testing process.

TestBuds is the next generation in product testing, founded by two friends: a PhD organic chemist and a data analytics expert with 20 years worth of experience from a wide range of positions across organic chemistry, consulting and data analytics.
