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


The aim of the project was to provide some insight into the food colourants market globally. The aim was to provide quantitative data with 5 years of historic data and estimations for the next 5 years.

The client was particularly interested in understanding the segments of the markets colours vs. lakes;  natural vs. synthetic vs. colouring foodstuffs, and caramel as a colour.

The client also required an opinion on the potential growth in North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific.


Utilising CPL’s network of senior industry executives, combined with desktop research and information from its own databases,  CPL was able to provide authentic, hard-to-get data which was thought to provide a more realistic view compared to data found in some publically available published reports.

The report was completed within a compressed timescale to meet the needs of the client.
