Tate & Lyle PLC (Tate & Lyle or the Company), a world leader in ingredient solutions for healthier food and beverages, is pleased to announce that it has earned an A rating from CDP for supplier engagement and has been named in CDP’s 2023 Supplier Engagement Rating Leaderboard.

CDP’s SER Leaderboard recognises those organisations with the highest-rating for engaging with suppliers on climate change, and celebrates the role they are playing in the transition towards a net zero economy. Around 450 organisations earned a place on CDP’s 2023 Supplier Engagement Leaderboard.
