In this case study, an international ingredients company engaged CPL Business Consultants to look at potential markets for 1,3 1,6 beta-glucan. 

CPL was able to provide a comprehensive and detailed report on the dynamics of the 1.3 1.6 beta-glucan market and provide clear strategic recommendations to the Client.


The main contents of the study were based on in-house databases and an extensive network of contacts in addition to any publicly available information. Additional information was sought from other key resources in dietary supplements and yeast companies. CPL used its extensive network of contacts to find information that would be difficult or impossible for clients to obtain independently.
