In this case study, a forestry product biorefinery engaged CPL Business Consultants to determine opportunities in the cellulose powder market.  CPL provided a comprehensive market analysis and go-to-market recommendations, leading to a successful market entry. 

The objective of this project was to assist the client in determining whether market opportunities exist in the cellulose ingredients business. The investigation focussed on market analysis and identification of potential opportunities in food, pharmaceuticals and personal care. The geographic focus was mainly on Europe and North America, but it also looked at markets in Japan.

The findings contributed to the company’s growth strategy. The client had investigated selling ingredients, and its principal interests were in the products requiring medium to high levels of quality, particularly for the food, cosmetics and pharmaceutical sectors.
