Have a look at our PowerPoint Introduction and Brochure describing deliverables, differentiators and case studies. Eight case studies can also be reviewed.


The objective of this study was to provide insight to a global ingredients company on players and potential acquisition targets in culinary systems with a specific geographic focus.


The focus was on companies selling B2B culinary systems (i.e. bespoke products where there is an element of chef-to-chef interaction).

CPL produced a long list of ~30 players in the market, with some high level analysis. The long list was discussed in detail with the client prior to producing a short list of ~10 potential targets.

CPL carried out a deep dive on the potential target companies which included a discussion on prioritisation and approach to the best-fit companies.


Spreadsheet containing long list, short-list and detailed financial information (balance sheets, profit and loss etc. ) of potential targets

Company Profiles for short listed targets including:

  • Company description
  • Financial information, including actual or estimated sales value
  • Applications focus
  • Differentiators
  • Ownership structure

The report enabled the client populate its M&A pipeline with well qualified targets.
