The purpose of this study was to provide our client with information on the market for smaller quantities of customer-specific sweetener blends consisting of liquid mixtures and dry blends of sugar with other ingredients.

Units considered were <one tonne. Smaller-scale quantities might be sold to food manufacturers already blending themselves, for whom it might be more cost-effective to buy blends made to their own requirements and delivered just-in-time. Liquid blends might include sucrose and glucose, invert, flavours and colours and/or dry mixtures with sucrose with starch, polydextrose, dextrose, spray dried glucose and fructose.

Specifically, our client wanted to know if it should sell syrups and whether or not to invest in new production and blending capacity.
