Tate & Lyle, a leading global provider of food and beverage solutions and ingredients, will be opening a new food and beverage technical application center in Dubai on October 18.
At the new USD 2 million project located in Jumeirah Lakes Towers, Tate & Lyle’s 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.
Through their expertise in the beverage, dairy, bakery, sauce and dressing categories, they will support manufacturers across the Middle East, Turkey and Africa to deliver successful food formulation, from ingredients and recipes to the application and sensory experience.
Dominique Floch, general manager, Turkey, Middle East and Africa at Tate & Lyle, said: “The launch of our new technical application center in Dubai marks a milestone in our expansion in the region. We will be using cutting-edge technology to provide our food and beverage partners with faster service and quicker project turnaround time frames, which will be instrumental in increasing their speed to market. We are committed to providing a platform for food and beverage companies to meet consumer demand for great-tasting products which support a balanced diet and lifestyle.”
Through the new center, food and beverage manufacturers will not only have access to Tate & Lyle’s expertise in food formulation but also to its wide range of specialty ingredients and solutions. These help manufacturers maintain the sweetness of their products while reducing sugar content and to deliver products high in fiber. Tate & Lyle’s experts on texture can also advise on how to create the exact formulation needed to make products customers love.
