Community

What community means to us

We think about community in its broadest sense. Each of us is part of the Tate & Lyle employee community and the communities of other stakeholders we work with such as our customers, suppliers and partner organisations. We’re also part of the local communities where we live and work, and we want everyone in those communities to have the opportunity to achieve their potential. 


We have set ourselves three targets to build thriving communities by 2025

food
Preventing hunger
By 2025, we’ll have provided over 3 million nutritious meals for people in need.

Supporting education
By 2025, we’ll have supported the education of over 100,000 children and students through learning programmes and grants, helping them attain skills for life.
inclusion and diversity
Promoting inclusion and diversity
By 2025, we’ll achieve gender parity in our leadership roles.
Our community partners

Our partners in this work include registered charities, educational institutions and non-governmental agencies that meet our high standards for delivering services and results.

We’re proud that our colleagues across our more than 30 locations lead the way in our community outreach – championing programmes in home communities that change us and the lives of others for better.

While we do align our Tate & Lyle in the Community Programme strategy and budgets annually, if you are a registered charity who would like to tell us more about your work and projects, please see our Giving Guidelines for Charitable Partners.
