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


The purpose of this study was to assist our client in updating its understanding of the present market for erythritol and the ongoing situation in stevia.

CPL sought to identify the users of erythritol in the food & beverage area, and to try to prioritise by listing the top 10 users. The focus was on global companies.

A second objective was to investigate suppliers’ capacities and prices for rebaudioside A/stevia and to provide our client with some insight and recommendations on the best company with which to work.

Our client wished to have information on aspects of erythritol as shown below:

• World market demand: Volumes, Value, Growth & Future Forecast
• Geographical Division: EU, US and ROW
• Applications Division: Food & Beverages
• List of Users: Top Ten highlighted, focus on global companies

For stevia, the focus was on suppliers, their capacities and prices.


CPL consulted with a group of individuals who were intimately linked to erythritol and stevia products over many years. For some of these, their involvement had ended and they are in other employment but still with contacts within the relevant sweetener business. Others were presently in positions of some responsibility still within these organisations being retained as consultants. These contacts are unnamed in the report.

Public sources were also used for much of the ‘hearsay’ information about both products. In addition, we used other database resources and obtained all the product launches worldwide since 2002 for erythritol and for the past 12 months for stevia derivatives.
