Supporting healthy living

The challenge

The incidence of obesity and diabetes, and concerns about digestive health, are increasing rapidly. And yet, while obesity is now responsible for more deaths than hunger, one in nine people in the world struggle to find enough nutritious food to eat every day.

We have set ourselves three targets to support healthy living by 2025

By 2025, we’ll have helped our colleagues improve how they look after their physical and mental wellbeing so they can be their best at work and in their daily lives.
How we’re tracking against our targets

The global pandemic has shone a spotlight on the importance of supporting healthy living. It has enhanced peoples’ understanding of the benefits of good nutrition, taking regular exercise and mental wellbeing. So we’re pleased that we continue to make good progress towards meeting our 2025 targets.

✓ 7.9 million tonnes of sugar removed from people’s diets, the equivalent to 31 trillion calories (2025 target: 9million tonnes and 36 trillion calories)

✓ 121,000 people supported with health, nutrition and wellbeing programmes (2025 target: 250,000 people)

✓ 73% of people felt that ‘Tate & Lyle actively supports their health and wellbeing’ (2025 target: 90% of people)

Providing solutions

Our expertise in sweetening, texture and fibre fortification provides consumers with healthier and tastier choices when they eat and drink. We help create products with fewer calories, sugar and fat, and with added fibre. We make nutritive sweeteners as well as stabiliser systems that allow food to travel over long distances. Our goal is not just to feed people, but to feed them well.
