In this case study, a global chemicals company engaged CPL Business Consultants to determine the potential market opportunities for pinolenic acid as a satiety ingredient and recommend a go-to-market strategy.

There was a particular focus on the regulatory, quality, price and purity requirements in appropriate sectors. In addition, CPL identified opportunities in the area of pinolenic acid and provided a selection of potential partners in the most appropriate market sectors or sub-sectors.

The report was a ‘snapshot’ of the main characteristics of the industries and markets into which pinolenic acid was, or could potentially, be sold. It identified potential regulatory hurdles and advised on the likely issues surrounding quality, price and purity requirements as relates to the market sectors identified. The main geographic focus was the EU and the US, and the main application focus was in the food, functional food ingredient and dietary supplement area.

The report advised on the likely size and scope of the opportunity and indicated what the regulatory requirements were likely to be.
