In 2020, Tate & Lyle set targets for the following five and 10 years under each pillar, against which good progress is being made
Tate & Lyle has published its Purpose Report 2022, in which the ingredient provider claims to have removed “four million tonnes of sugar from people’s diets”.
Nick Hampton, Chief Executive, Tate & Lyle, said: “We are living in an immensely challenging economic environment and life is getting harder for people everywhere. That’s why our purpose of Transforming Lives through the Science of Food, and through it the positive impact we can have on healthier living, our people and local communities, and the planet, has never been more important to us.”
Tate & Lyle’s purpose is lived through three pillars: “Supporting healthy living”; “Building thriving communities”; and “Caring for the planet”. In 2020, Tate & Lyle set targets for the following five and 10 years under each pillar, against which good progress is being made.
• Supporting healthy living: Through its low-and no-calorie sweeteners and fibres, and the expertise of its food scientists, Tate & Lyle has taken 4 million tonnes of sugar1 out of people’s diets against a target of 9 million tonnes by 2025.

• Building thriving communities: Tate & Lyle has helped its food bank partners around the world provide around 3 million1 nutritious meals for people in need. In addition, in line with Tate & Lyle’s commitment to reach gender parity in leadership and management roles (around 500 people) by 2025, 42%2 of these roles are now held by women.
• Caring for the planet: 91%3 of waste generated across Tate & Lyle was beneficially used in 2021 against a target of 100% beneficial use by 2030. In 2022, Tate & Lyle also committed to be net zero by 2050.
