Work Experience Blog

Our work experience this week was in the New Product Development department alongside Kate in her development kitchen.


This week we did admin work and I helped Kate (Development Technologist) convert information about different chutneys from word to an excel document. This took a long time but I managed to get quite a lot done in the Everyday and Catering section.

Also Harrison & I observed and videoed Kate making a new Tomato sauce which we made in to an iMovie, as we wanted to share it with all Shaws followers on social media. We tossed the product into some pasta & interviewed some of Shaws staff tasting the product to get their opinions on the finished product.


For this week, I was given the task to complete a market analysis of three products from the chutney category. I had to find and document all the specific competitor products to allow Shaws to compare these to what products Shaw’s currently produce or are developing.

Following this task, Ruby & I helped the development technologist in adapting a new product. This involved amending the current ingredients and production method used. We finally created a short movie showing how Kate goes about trying a new product in the kitchen which was prepped for social media purposes.

Try some of Kates recipes on Shaws website, they are yummy:

Work experience blog.


Our names are Harrison and Ruby and we are at Shaws in order to gain a sense of what it is like to work in a small business. We are working together as part of a work experience course as we have just left school after completing GCSE exams.
