In this case study, a global ingredients company engaged CPL Business Consultants to find opportunities for brain health, immune health, satiety, weight management and glycaemic index.

Opportunities for brain health included improving cognitive function and mental performance with an emphasis on energy metabolism in the brain. Immune health opportunities focussed on immunomodulation, for example, boosting the immune system and reducing autoimmune disorders.

Initially, through its extensive networks, proprietary data and desktop research, CPL identified 221 potential health ingredient opportunities meeting the client’s criteria.  We profiled the opportunities, describing what was available, the owner, IP, trials and other pertinent data. CPL then ranked the opportunities in order of suitability and recommended the next steps to take.

The client used this report to bring new products into its portfolio before another ingredients company acquired it.
