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

Objective

The objective of this study was to assist our client in its wishes to diversify its offering in functional food ingredients. CPL undertook a scouting project with a focus on opportunities linked to Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) / Weight Loss / Satiety & Insulin Resistance platforms.

Key factors identified for functional foods / ingredients were the likelihood of regulatory approval and the additional uncertainty surrounding timescales with the stiffening of the EU position concerning ‘hard’ health claims.

Method

Over 80 provisional opportunities were identified by CPL. Enquiries were made by telephone and email, and searches of company literature were carried out. Around 50 possible opportunities or projects were identified from the 80 provisional ideas and some more information was obtained for each them.

The potential opportunities were initially assessed by scoring the following criteria: development costs to market, time to market, attitude of present owner, market size (value & volume), appeal, originality, proprietary nature, approval required and fit with the client’s business.
The scores generated a ranking that was one element in determining preliminary recommendations to our client about further action. A limited number of opportunities were selected for further investigation.

CPL searched the patents databases, clinical trials databases and scientific publications databases in order to gain further insight into each opportunity. CPL also contacted these companies and each opportunity was further before recommendations were presented.
