About Roslyn

Tastebuddies was created from a love of food, but also from over 30 years of food industry experience, including roles as a food technologist, product development manager, nutritionist, and regulatory affairs specialist involved in developing and supporting many new food products to markets, online and retail supermarkets.

Roslyn has always had this love of food, and cooking, something which began at 4 years old, when she would cook with her grandmother and mother with fresh produce from their farm garden and fruit orchard.

She now has her own veggies and herbs growing in her back garden and has 3 chickens too. And still loves to cook! With over 300 cookbooks in her possession, she is a little obsessed with food and cooking and loves using new ingredients! Her family don’t mind enjoying in the recipe trials either!

When you work with Roslyn as you Food Labelling Expert, you will have access to her knowledge and skills in this area, as she stays current with the changing food laws and regulatory affairs environment, which is a must in the food industry.

Past clients have commented on just how much knowledge she has to share, and love working with her, because she ensures that you develop your understanding at the same time!

And this is the reason why Roslyn created the Tastebuddies Food Labelling courses. Because startups and small businesses can do it themselves, and then just get the last process assisted with (aka that final checking off stage!) If you are thinking of creating a new food product, then head over here and let’s get you started!

Testimonials

I recently had the pleasure of working with Roslyn from – Tastebuddies Food & Nutrition.  We are a startup business and were very overwhelmed with the legal requirements for labelling our food product/s, Roslyn was extremely helpful from the first phone conversation, which made us feel at ease knowing we had an experienced knowledgable professional working with us. Roslyn was very organised and structured which made the process of the job much easier to understand and achieve the desired result.

After starting to work with Roslyn we were so pleased and comfortable, we began to work on another project together to ensure our product we were developing was compliant also.

I would absolutely recommend Roslyn from Tastebuddies Food & Nutrition to anyone with any stage of their labelling, even if it is just to look over it. – Trust us by saying, it is not worth not getting a label consultant to sign off on your labels. Thanks again Roslyn

Jamie Pratt, Lean Blend

Thank you Roslyn for making this journey to completing my product labels so smooth & efficient.

I appreciate your knowledge and expertise in this area and felt so confident that my labels would be compliant.

As a new raw food business it was daunting to look at doing this myself and I was worried that I might miss something and risk noncompliance.

I felt you were very thorough, especially when you followed up with the suppliers of my raw ingredients when you found their labels to be noncompliant for Australia.

The report you provided with the nutrition panel and all of the supporting information that had to be listed on the labels, with specifications of how and where, made it all really clear and easy for my designer to follow.

Thanks again! Top job! I will be recommending your services
