In this case study, a global health and nutrition ingredients company engaged CPL Business Consultants to carry out a scouting project, looking for opportunities in human and animal health ingredients. CPL’s comprehensive report identified over 100 potential opportunities, which subsequently resulted in several investments and partnerships. 

The objective of this report was for CPL to identify and bring to light ingredient opportunities to assist its client in developing its position in health ingredients as part of its growth and diversification strategy. The emphasis, due to the client’s requirements, was on intellectual property, exclusivity and minimum market potential within a reasonable period.

The client provided CPL with some of its strategic goals and with a series of keywords with goals, for example, in the sectors of Human Nutrition and Health, Animal Nutrition and Health and Base Product. These strategic goals and keywords were both used as filters during the search and to eliminate those opportunities meeting none of the key criteria.
