Tate & Lyle Sugars Today

Tate & Lyle Sugars has a rich history in sugars and syrups produced from sugar cane.

In October 2010, American Sugar Holdings (ASR Group) acquired the EU sugar refining businesses of Tate & Lyle PLC, namely Tate & Lyle Sugars in the UK and Sidul in Portugal.

This was an important milestone, as these operations are now part of the world’s largest cane sugar refining company with operations in North America, Central America and Europe.

The European businesses have approximately 1,300 direct and contract employees (inc. shares in joint ventures) manufacturing sugar at our three refineries and associated manufacturing sites. The cane sugar supply chain which supplies them stretches across the world.

The business focuses principally on bringing speciality sugars and functional ingredients made from sugar cane to the EU marketplace.
