It also is the North American headquarters of Tate &Lyle’s Speciality Food Ingredients division.

The new Centre includes advanced food science research and processing laboratories, applications and technical services laboratories, a culinary demonstration kitchen, a full suite of consumer insight and sensory testing facilities, pilot plant and prototype manufacturing facilities, and extensive global communications capabilities.

At today’s Grand Opening, customers and other visitors were joined by senior executives and employees from Tate &Lyle for a tour of the facility, culinary demonstrations, sampling of products, and other events.

Speaking at the official opening ceremony, Olivier Rigaud, President, Speciality Food Ingredients said, “Our new Centre demonstrates our commitment to develop distinctive, high-quality speciality food ingredients and solutions for our customers across the world. The Centre’s state-of–the-art facilities together with our highly skilled and experienced teams of scientists, marketers and product managers, provide a unique combination to help meet our customer’s functional, formulation and nutritional needs, and to accelerate the process of bringing new products to market.”
