Why work with us

An extraordinary place to work

We asked our people to tell us what’s special about working at Tate & Lyle and this is what they told us:


A passion for food innovation that inspires people to do extraordinary things; we are all part of a team of experts that share the same goal.


We’re driven by innovation and change, always looking for ways to make our products tastier, healthier and more cost-effective.


We are changing the face of food – few brands touch lives like we do. We’re proud of what we’ve achieved and together we share in the extraordinary successes we create.


We have a history of that spans more than 150 years and are known for our enduring strong Values. We are dedicated to building a modern, global business that puts its people first.
Our passion, our drive, our belief in doing things the right way – all add up to something special.
