In this case study, a regional sugar company engaged CPL to advise and make recommendations on the potential market for fructose syrups from chicory, as part of its diversification strategy planning process.
This short project considered what producers were doing, what customers thought, what were the price trends, and especially what the key parameters were with respect to entering the business. Specific recommendations were made to the client, including whether this represented a feasible commercial opportunity for them.
The study looked in considerable detail at the technology of fructose production and provided a number of economic scenarios based on different technical parameters.
