The objective of this project is for CPL to assist the client in the development of its plans to create an ingredient Business based on its existing products and side streams in order to capture more value. CPL reviewed the activities of 25 exiting players with various ingredients strategies to illustrate different ways portfolios have developed. We included in the report a number of key success factors for the industry and CPL’s ‘Four Ss’ for adding value.


Following a workshop with our client, CPL conducted internal brainstorming sessions and preliminary research to identify areas that warranted further analysis. Subsequent study focused on describing key characteristics of markets, such as size and growth rate, technologies currently in use, and an appraisal of the potential for our client in each area.

The report used data from public sources and data bases, as well as contacts from across the sectors of interest to make recommendations.
