Tate & Lyle, a leading global provider of food and beverage ingredients and solutions, is pleased to announce the opening of its new and expanded Latin American headquarters in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in the Avenida das Nações Unidas in the southern zone of Sao Paulo.
The headquarters includes a new application centre, which is six times larger than Tate & Lyle’s previous centre in Sao Paulo and amongst the Company’s largest globally. This multimillion-dollar investment reflects the importance and growth potential of the Latin American region for Tate & Lyle.
The new application centre will help industry manufacturers develop products that meet increasing consumer preferences for healthier, tastier food and beverages. It includes a pilot plant and state-of-the-art experimental kitchen, which enables customers to design and test different recipe formulations across a range of categories including dairy, beverage and bakery. Other services include sensory analysis and shelf-life testing of products, as well as a room for focus groups with consumers.
As part of Tate & Lyle’s global innovation and application network, the new centre will also benefit from Tate & Lyle’s recent investment in a new recipe development platform. This platform provides one global database for recipe and ingredient knowledge, connecting Tate & Lyle’s technical teams across the world and leading to a more agile response to customers with effective solutions.
Oswaldo Nardinelli, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Food & Beverage Solutions, Latin America, Tate & Lyle, said:
“There is an increasing consumer demand in Latin America for more food and beverage options that can support healthier diets and lifestyles, and manufacturers are increasingly looking for new ways to reduce calories, fat and sugar, and enrich products. While the need and demand for healthier options is clear, we know that consumers will not compromise on taste and it’s this challenge – making healthy food tastier, and tasty food healthier – that our food scientists and application experts are helping food businesses overcome.
“Our new application centre brings together Tate & Lyle’s cutting-edge science, market leading ingredients and product development capabilities, offering manufacturers across the region a convenient and high quality ‘one-stop-shop’ for formulation.”
