Smoothie Lab Workshop

Find out about our brand new student workshop, in partnership with innocent.

We are proud to announce the launch of our new workshop, Smoothie Lab, designed to explore the fundamentals in developing a product as well as exploring how brands communicate their values through packaging.

Developed in partnership with innocentSmoothie Lab provides an insight into the various considerations and choices that are made when developing a product.  The workshop explores how successful brands influence customer behaviour as well as an in-depth analysis of branding strategies.

Students will have the opportunity to develop their own smoothie concept. They will look at profit margins, key USPs and points of difference in the market, before working out a strong visual identity in line with innocent’s brand and will consider advertising and PR hooks. Having identified these key elements they will pitch the drink to the group. 

Students will also learn about health benefit claims of their products and the restrictions British brands have on what claims can be made.

To ensure students maximise this learning opportunity we provide pre and post-sessional activities to be undertaken in the classroom to reinforce the workshop’s key objectives. There will be an accompanying worksheet to guide students through our permanent exhibition, the Time Tunnel, which will highlight the steps in our consumer history that have led to convenient, single portion smoothies. This will also be available for general visitors and families.
