Improving Lives for Generations is our company’s Purpose. It’s what we do, whether we’re helping our customers reduce sugar, calories and fat in their products or enriching them with fibre, discovering new ways to make great tasting, healthier food and drink, or investing in sustainable futures for the farmers. We never stop looking for ways of improving lives for generations.
As 2019 draws to a close, here are some of the things we did for the first time in past 12 months…
We celebrated turning 160 years old!
Encouraging the next generation of food scientists, we judged the inaugural Enders Salk Elementary science fair.
11 of our sites around the world are now plastic-free!
We enabled more families in South Africa to access the nutritional benefits of dairy.
We partnered with Earthwatch to ensure that our stevia sweetener supply chain supports sustainable livelihoods and farming practices, with minimal impact on the environment.
We successfully petitioned the FDA to exempt allulose from the 'Sugars' and 'Added Sugars' line of the Nutrition Facts Panels on US food and drink.
We started exploring the benefit of dietary fibres for specific improved health outcomes, particularly relating to cardio-metabolic health.
We explored the diabetes epidemic, dietary interventions and the role food and beverage manufacturers can play in developing products to help consumers manage blood glucose.
We opened our brand new Latin American headquarters and application centre in Sao Paulo.
Here’s to a great 2019 and an even better 2020 of Improving Lives for Generations!
