Oltmer Food Academy

From Practice, for Practice

Sound, practice-oriented and tailor-made for your company – these are the sensory training courses offered by the Oltmer Food Academy. Our experienced team of trainers with sensory experts, DLG assessors (DLG = German Agricultural Society) and food technologists with relevant industry and craft experience ensures a unique transfer of knowledge.


The Oltmer Food Academy is the division of Oltmer Food Consulting GmbH (OFC) that specialises in sensory training and workshops for the food sector.  Training content is always up to date with the latest science as well as industrial and craft practice – always consistently adapted to the practical requirements of companies, with direct reference to the daily work of the participants.

The best pre-requisites are in place to ensure the targeted development of a company’s own, high-performance sensory panel, as well as for regular refresher training courses, or training of your in-house sensory test personnel. In addition, our sensory experts can support your sensory panel in carrying out extensive sensory evaluations: both in terms of supporting such projects and imparting the know-how regarding the best analytical methods for these projects.


The organisation of the sensory training courses can be provided as an "all-round service", if required, e.g. incorporating hotel bookings for the participants group, meals, evening program as well as the arrangement of transfers. This allows your participants to focus entirely on the training content.

Your contact person for everything to do with booking and organising your sensory training at the Oltmer Food Academy is Stefanie Herbergs – please feel free to contact her at any time via our online contact form.
