The purpose of this study was to provide a client with information on the market for smaller quantities of customer-specific liquid mixtures and dry blends of sugar with other ingredients. Units considered were <one tonne.

Smaller-scale quantities might be sold to food manufacturers already blending themselves, for whom it might be more cost-effective to buy blends made to their own requirements and delivered just-in-time. Liquid blends included sucrose and glucose, invert, flavours and colours and/or dry mixtures with sucrose with starch, polydextrose, dextrose, spray dried glucose and fructose.

CPL surveyed 118 potential customers to understand their sourcing needs.
