In this case study, CPL Business assisted a potential investor in the due diligence of a gelatine and animal products company


The objective of this project was to assist our client in understanding the product portfolio of an animal products company that was a potential target for acquisition. This project sought to support the client in carrying out their due diligence regarding the gelatine market.


The study was based on sources available to CPL, including in-house databases and an extensive network of contacts in addition to the publicly available information. CPL also talked to a number of companies and institutes.

Searches were conducted to gather more information about markets, trends, companies and new products. We also carried out a short patent search to see if there were any recent innovations in animal products from various sources or their applications. Finally, we reviewed news articles and abstracts of journal articles that we considered useful.
