Code of Ethics - essential ingredients 

Welcome to Tate & Lyle's Code of Ethics. It sets out how we do
business, explains what stakeholders can expect from us and states what we require from our employees and look for in our business partners.

You can read the Code by downloading it here. Alternatively, find the Code in your language below.

A note from our Chief Executive

In business and in life in general there are often temptations to take a ‘shorter route’; to be ‘a little flexible’; to be ‘pragmatic’ – these are usually euphemisms for compromising integrity. When times are good, it is easy to ignore such temptations. But when the pressure is on and there are demanding targets to be met, there can be a temptation to ‘get there’ by compromising standards.

It is never worth it.

At Tate & Lyle we believe in doing what is right, no matter what. Most of the time we know instinctively what is right and what is not. Our general rule is, if something doesn’t feel right, don’t do it. But sometimes there can be grey areas, and if you are unsure, you must ask. And if you see something that looks wrong, you must report it.

This Code of Ethics is a guide to help you do business the right way. Please read it carefully so you understand what is required of us all as employees and business partners of Tate & Lyle.

Integrity is one of our Core Values, and we must never compromise it.
