World Food Day is a day that focuses on a reality that impacts millions of people worldwide – that healthy nutritious meals are often out of reach.
We understand the urgent need to make health and sustainable diets affordable and accessible to everyone. This means not only quantity for those that suffer from hunger, but also quality nutrition for those that are overweight or obese.
While the challenge of ensuring everyone around the world has enough nutritious food to eat seems daunting, we believe everyone can be part of the solution.
Our ingredients, expertise and passion can make a difference
With 160 years in the food industry, we know the difference a healthy diet can make. Nutrition science tells us that modifying our diets to be healthier and more balanced can significantly impact our predisposition towards chronic diseases, as well as positively impact health across a lifetime.
“Our industry has a role to play in understanding and solving challenges like these,” says Kavita Karnik, Tate & Lyle’s VP of Nutrition and Open Innovation. “As a purpose-driven company, we’ll continue to do our part in this global conversation, through sharing our ingredients and our expertise.”
Our Purpose: Improving Lives for Generations starts with each of us
We’re proud that our teams around the world are inspired to help move the health and hunger solution forward.
Here are just a few ways that together as Tate & Lyle we are making a difference towards Zero Hunger:
- Innovating ingredients, which help make the foods we love healthier and tastier, like our TASTEVA® M, DOLCIA PRIMA® Allulose, and PROMITOR® Soluble Fibre.
- Fostering solution-focused community nutrition and health discussions with key stakeholders and decision makers, like the Singapore Health Promotion Board
- Supporting health initiatives, food banks and food drives in our local communities, through our Tate & Lyle in the Community programme – sharing our time, talent and resources to drive positive and lasting change.
