AT011 Opportunities in Food Systems and Blends

Have a look at our PowerPoint Introduction and Brochure describing deliverables, differentiators and case studies. Eight case studies can also be reviewed.

Objective

The objective of this study was to provide insight to a global ingredients company on the competitive landscape and potential acquisition targets in food systems and blends with a specific geographic focus.  This included systems for texturizing and stabilising food products. 

Method

The focus was on companies selling food systems and blends (i.e. hydrocolloid systems/blends, where the blends or systems are sold as value-added ‘solutions’, to solve specific challenges such as texturization or stabilisation).

Initially CPL advised on the types of companies involved in food systems and blends and the key success factors for operating in this area. 

CPL produced a long list of ~90 players in the market, with some high level analysis in spread sheet.

The long list was discussed in detail with the client prior to producing a short list of ~20 potential targets.

CPL carried out a deep dive on the potential target companies which included a discussion on prioritisation and approach to the best-fit companies. 7 companies were prioritised. 

Deliverables

CPL delivered a spread sheet containing long list, short-list and detailed financial information (balance sheets, profit and loss etc. ) of potential targets

Company Profiles for short listed targets including: 

  • Company description
  • Financial information, including actual or estimated sales value
  • Strengths/weaknesses
  • Applications focus
  • Differentiators
  • Ownership structure

The report enabled the client to populate its M&A pipeline. The client subsequently acquired one of the companies that CPL had profiled.
