Statements under section 172 of the Companies Act 2006

In accordance with the Companies Act 2006, Tate & Lyle PLC and one of its UK subsidiaries – Tate & Lyle Mold UK Limited - is required to prepare a statement in its Strategic Report which describes how the directors have discharged their duty to promote the success of the company for the benefit of its members as a whole, while having regard to the matters set out in section 172(1) (a) to (f).

Tate & Lyle PLC’s section 172 statement is included in its 2021 Annual Report on page 97.

The section 172(1) statement for Tate & Lyle Mold UK Limited from the most recently approved accounts is set out below:

When making decisions, the Directors have regard to the matters set out in section 172 of the Companies Act 2006 and seek to take the course of action that it considers best leads to the success of the Company over the long term, and for the benefit of its shareholder as a whole.

The Company is a subsidiary of Tate & Lyle PLC, and the Company’s key stakeholders are its ultimate beneficial owner, Tate & Lyle PLC, related Tate & Lyle subsidiaries and the stakeholder groups set out in Tate & Lyle PLC’s 2020 Annual Report.

Most engagement with the Company’s key stakeholders is integrated within the governance framework of the Group, and the Directors are mindful of the Company’s strategic priorities and alignment with the Group’s overarching purpose, strategy, culture and values. Engagement with the ultimate shareholder, Ta t e & Lyle PLC, is principally effected through the Executive Committee of the Group. From time to time, members of the Company’s Board provide updates on business and operational performance, environment, safety and people matters to the Executive Committee. When there are circumstances where the Company itself judges that it should engaged directly with certain stakeholder groups or on certain issues, the size and spread of both the Company’s stakeholders and the Group means that most stakeholder engagement takes place at a Group level.

Further details on how the Group engaged with its stakeholders including suppliers, customers and others in business relationships, can be found in the 2020 Annual Report for Tate & Lyle PLC on pages 82 to 85.
