Deep technical know-how. State-of-the-art equipment. A global network of research labs, application labs and pilot plants. Tate & Lyle’s expertise and resources are available to assist during the various stages of your product development process – helping to deliver the products and cost savings to drive your future success.
Our laboratories and pilot plant facilities are designed to accommodate customer project teams working on new food or beverage propositions or optimising existing brands. Our technical service engineers support you and coordinate the project from initial brief, to prototyping, to final industrial implementation. When you’re entirely happy, they’re happy.
We also use a range of specialist analytical techniques that help us understand and quantify the physical and chemical properties of our ingredients and products. These methods include particle size analysers, controlled stress rheometers, texture analysers, liquid chromatography systems, thermo-gravimetric analysis and differential scanning calorimetry.
Our analytical chemists work on implementing methods already approved by the scientific community, to ensure absolute consistency and reliability in your product’s functionality. They also collaborate with our quality experts to maintain the highest quality standards.
We also test our own ingredients in a wide variety of recipes so we can better predict how they will work in your product and correct any problems at an early stage. So whether you’re making a fruit drink or a breakfast cereal, we have the experience and technology to deliver the results you want.
Our pilot plants also include semi-industrial food manufacturing facilities very similar to your own facilities.
