Why partner with Tate & Lyle?

People in a laboratory

Across the world, academics, researchers, inventors and businesses are working on projects which could become the speciality ingredient success stories of tomorrow. Our Open Innovation team is dedicated to making those stories come true – putting the technical and commercial expertise of Tate & Lyle alongside the inspiration of innovators in long-term partnerships, designed to help exciting new products meet their full potential.

Worldwide reach. Personal partnerships. 

A partnership with us could launch your speciality ingredient or innovative technology to a worldwide market. Tate & Lyle provides ingredients and solutions to many of the world’s largest 100 food and beverage manufacturers; and we have research, development and manufacturing facilities in Europe, the Americas and Asia.

While our global scale is critical to maximising the potential of new ingredients, we’ve found that the best partnerships are the ones that are simple, straightforward, and long-term. If you are the originator of a brilliant new idea, then the best person to work on that idea… is you.

Our Open Innovation team works directly with potential partners, ensuring they get access to the Tate & Lyle resources they need, whether that is the use of our pilot-scale facilities, our Innovation Centre, applications support teams, global regulatory support, or marketing and sales.

This personal approach works for us – and for our partners. Global success stories like SPLENDA® Sucralose, SODA-LO™ Salt Microspheres and PUREFRUIT™ Monk Fruit Extract have been built on partnerships based on trust, transparency, mutual support – and shared excitement over the possibilities of a new ingredient.
