INTRODUCTION Launching an innovation means being the first to bring visible added value to a certain area or market. For that purpose, time-to-market is key to deliver an innovation and simulation becomes an asset to mitigate the risks (commercial, structural, regulatory, organoleptic). Shelf stable products are products that can be safely stored at room temperature, or "on the shelf" per the USDA website. In the scope of launching its ambient GoGo SqueeZ Yogurtz, MOM Group has conducted a series of measurement to evaluate what temperatures the product is exposed to from Europe to the USA (ground & on the ocean). After a presentation of the protocol and the results, this paper will propose a predictive model and discuss how such model can speed the time-to-market and lower the risks of launching the product by simulating in laboratory the conditions the product will face.
