Manufacturing excellence 

Creating enduringly successful ingredients for customers is as much about understanding manufacturing as it is about the science of an ingredient. With well over a century of expertise in making ingredients, we know manufacturing inside out.

Our manufacturing base
We have production facilities around the world. These large-scale, efficient plants turn corn and sugar cane into products and ingredients to meet the needs of our customers and their brands. We’re not a one-size-fits-all facility, however – we often work in partnership with customers, developing bespoke technologies and processes to create products tailored to their needs.

Innovation in technology
The reason we’ve been in manufacturing so long is because we understand that technology doesn’t stand still. Part of our secret is our continuous search for simpler and better ways of making things – faster, more efficiently, more cost effectively, using fewer resources. We have a specialist research and technology team who spend their time investigating and developing new technologies to make our manufacturing processes even better.

Summing up excellence
Like most things in business, manufacturing excellence is largely about people. While ensuring we have the latest in technology and equipment, we also invest in our engineers and scientists to make sure they’re the best in their field. Working at Tate & Lyle, they get the opportunity for hands-on learning in a global, diverse manufacturing environment. Our team’s enthusiasm and thirst for knowledge, along with their dedication to customer satisfaction mean that manufacturing excellence is a way of life at Tate & Lyle.
