Tate & Lyle welcomes the announcement by the US Department of Commerce and the Mexican Secretariat of Economy of the conclusion of the Suspension Agreements on sugar from Mexico.

Chicago, Illinois, US, 6 June 2017 – Tate & Lyle PLC (Tate & Lyle), a leading global provider of food ingredients and solutions, welcomes the announcement by the US Department of Commerce and the Mexican Secretariat of Economy of the conclusion of the Suspension Agreements on sugar from Mexico.

The Sugar Suspension Agreements, originally agreed in 2014, suspend the anti-dumping and countervailing duty investigations on imports of Mexican sugar into the US.  The Agreements also limit the amount of sugar that Mexican companies can export to the US, and set price floors for that sugar.

Tate & Lyle greatly appreciates the efforts of Secretary Ross in reaching the revised Sugar Suspension Agreements.  The revised Agreements are good news for US jobs and US farmers, and successfully protect a key export market for the US corn industry and US agriculture as a whole.
