Tate & Lyle PLC, a leading global provider of food and beverage solutions and ingredients, has opened its new Technical Application Center in Dubai.
At the new USD 2 million state-of-the-art center, food scientists will work with food and beverage customers to address the growing demand for solutions that lower sugar, fat, and calories, and add fiber in consumer products.
The opening of the center reflects Tate & Lyle’s commitment to the development of the food and beverage industry in the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa.
Through its expertise in the beverage, dairy, bakery, sauce, and dressing categories, Tate & Lyle’s experts will support manufacturers across the region to deliver food formulation, from ingredients and recipes to the application and sensory experience.
The center boasts advanced equipment and an optimized prototyping process to help customers drive their innovation agenda faster.
Tate & Lyle will run a newly launched initiative by UAE Food and Beverage Manufacturers Group, the Middle East Sugar and Calorie Reduction Knowledge Building Program, from the new center.
Targeting government entities, food regulators, health departments, food and beverage manufacturers, and dietary supplement providers, the six-session program will provide theoretical and practical knowledge for sugar and calorie reduction in food and beverage products.
