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

The objective of this study is to assist the client in assessing amino acids as an area of potential opportunity.

The client wants to reduce its dependence on a single product and there are a number of possibilities that it could consider to achieve this. These include adding value to its existing products or by-products, developing new products based on its location, technical capability and physical assets, or making and developing acquisitions in related businesses.

It needs to obtain an overview of various potential opportunities in order to make some decisions. The present study is intended to help it focus on the sectors that have most promise.
