Compusense® – Innovation built on a strong foundation

In 1986, Dr. Chris Findlay founded Compusense® in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. He was inspired by what he saw as a clear demand for computerization of sensory analysis as a tool to accelerate the product development cycle.

Drawing on 20 years of industry, research and academic experience, Chris established Compusense® with a commitment to promote sound scientific sensory methods delivered in user-friendly software products and exceptional customer service. His dedication to strengthening the field of sensory and consumer science has guided the growth of three main business units: Sensory Evaluation Software, Sensory Services, and Support and Training.

Inspiring innovation around the world

From day one, Compusense® has maintained a global focus. We serve clients in over 50 countries on five continents – and in 25 languages.
