Lübeck, Germany, 15 March 2017 – Tate & Lyle PLC (“Tate & Lyle”), a leading global provider of speciality food ingredients and solutions, is pleased to unveil its upgraded Food Systems Global Innovation Centre in Lübeck, Germany.
In May 2016, Tate & Lyle’s Food Systems facility in Lübeck was refocused as a site dedicated exclusively to innovation, applications and solutions expertise for customers of its global Food Systems business. As part of this refocusing, investments were made to expand and enhance the customer-facing facilities, and these are now complete and open for customers to use.
As well as its extensive applications laboratories, the Lübeck Centre includes four large state-of-the-art pilot plants with dedicated areas for dairy, convenience, bakery and meat preparation allowing for fully customised prototype production as well as the demonstration of on-site technical expertise. The pilot plants have the capacity for up to 300 trials per month. The Centre will also be used to hold customer and distributor events, including innovation workshops, seminars and on-site technical training.
