About us

Our recipe for success

We draw our inspiration from three key ingredients: our purpose of Transforming Lives Through the Science of Food; our technical expertise and deep understanding of the food and beverage market; and our portfolio of high-quality products and ingredients.

Blend them all together, and we’ve got the right recipe to help manufacturers deliver on sweetness, texture, fibre enrichment and stabilisation to create products enjoyed by millions of people every day.


Our purpose is Transforming Lives Through the Science of Food

Our purpose is simple: to help people all over the world make healthier and tastier food and drink choices, whilst supporting our communities and caring for our planet, not just today but for the future.

We work with customers to:

  • use our low and no-calorie sweeteners to help remove millions of tonnes of sugar from people’s diets

  • add gut-friendly fibres that provide health benefits

  • use texturants to create smooth, creamy, indulgent desserts

  • stabilise foods to keep every mouthful delicious for weeks
