About Tate & Lyle Ingredients Americas LLC
Tate & Lyle Ingredients Americas, the US subsidiary of UK ingredient giant Tate & Lyle, is one of a handful of producers that make high-fructose corn syrup -- the liquid sweetener used by virtually all soft-drink manufacturers in the world. In addition to corn syrup, Tate & Lyle Ingredients Americas manufactures sweeteners (including sucralose, the main ingredient in SPLENDA), acidulants, and commodities (e.g., corn gluten feed and meal and corn oil). The company also provides industrial starches to paper and packaging industries.
Tate & Lyle Ingredients Americas' parent company, Tate & Lyle, reported stagnant sales of about £1.6 billion in the Americas between 2019 and 2018.
Tate & Lyle Ingredients Americas' parent's strategy for growth in the US involves diversifying its portfolio of low-cost commodity base ingredients and modifying its ingredient sourcing activities to address growing customer concern over sugar's health effects and the ecological impacts of large-scale corn cultivation.
In 2019 the company signed a supply and licensing agreement with protein engineering company Codexis to use some of its enzymes in Tate & Lyle's Tasteva M Stevia Sweetener. The product is a better tasting form of stevia -- a zero-calorie sweetener alternative to sugar.
The previous year Tate & Lyle partnered with Land O' Lakes to use the company's Truterra Insights Engine to help corn farmers in the Midwest measure the environmental impact of their growing activities. The technology facilitates real-time, acre-by-acre assessment of return on investment of users' sustainability efforts, creating higher transparency which Tate & Lyle uses to inform its supply chain strategy.
In response to substantial cost increases related to materials, logistics, and transportation in North America in 2018, Tate & Lyle raised prices between 3% and 11% on its specialty starches, fibers, and oat offerings; specialty and high-intensity sweeteners; and stabilization and functional ingredient systems.
