In this case study, a sugar company engaged CPL Business Consultants to assess the market for smaller-scale sugar blends with other ingredients. CPL advised the client on the potential to add value to its operations by blending and also on potential customer requirements. 

The purpose was to inform the client about the market for smaller quantities of customer-specific blends of sugar with other ingredients (i.e. liquid mixtures and dry blends).

Food manufacturers were blending themselves but could otherwise potentially buy smaller-scale blends as a more cost-effective solution, made to their own requirements and delivered just-in-time. These blends included liquids, for example, sucrose and glucose, invert, flavours and colours and/or dry mixtures such as sucrose with starch, polydextrose, dextrose, spray-dried glucose and fructose.

CPL surveyed 118 potential customers to understand their sourcing needs.
