In this case study, an international food manufacturer engaged CPL Business Consultants to quantify the potential value and markets for mannitol as a co-product.  This project resulted from an earlier study where CPL looked at the potential of valorising components its waste-stream. CPL characterised the market and also made recommendations on market attractiveness and the next steps to take.

Objective and Method

The objective was to provide insights into the mannitol market, in order to gauge the potential for valorising the client’s production effluent.  CPL identified the key markets, values and price points and additionally interviewed experts with a specific knowledge of polyols and mannitol.
