In this case study a sugar company engaged CPL Business Consultants to provide insights into the EU sugar industry to help it determine its competitive positioning and formulate a competitive strategy. 

The objective of this study was to obtain information about manufacturers in the EU sugar industry to assist the client in understanding its competitive position. In particular, the study sought information about the capacities of other companies to process sugar into secondary, speciality products using various pieces of equipment to combine and modify it.
