Can you tell me how much it will cost for you to help me develop a new food or beverage product?
Yes, we can provide you with an overall estimate for our consultancy fees. But it all starts with a good brief. The better your brief, the better we can plan for the costs that may be involved in achieving it. This is why we will spend time with you at the beginning of any new project to first understand your product idea and the outcomes that you are seeking. We have developed some simple tools to help guide you through the process, starting with a questionnaire and free, no obligation consultation. You can read more about our process for taking your brief and providing an estimate here.
Can New Zealand government funding cover some of your fees?
Yes, there are a number of sources of government funding available to New Zealand companies for research and development or for business capability growth. The exact amount and programme open to you will vary depending on your business, your project and the type of assistance that you require. Your project with Cogito may be eligible for New Zealand Trade and Enterprise’s (NZTE) Capability Development vouchers or Callaghan Innovation’s Research and Development (R&D) Growth grants.
