In this case study, a specialist regional ingredients company engaged CPL Business Consultants to look at market opportunities for coagulant enzymes in the dairy market. CPL’s report gave insight and strategic direction to the client, which subsequently entered the market with a successful product.

The objective of this study was to determine the market opportunities for a dairy coagulation enzyme used in cheesemaking. This study specifically looked at the potential for coagulation enzymes from GMOs.

CPL addressed several important questions:

  • Is there any reason to consider entering this sector?
  • If a company wanted to do this, what would it cost over what period of time?
  • If a company were to enter this field, would it earn back its investment?
  • What patents or other intellectual property can be obtained?
  • What would be the best approach for a company entering this field?
  • Should it consider doing this on its own or with others in the business?
