Tate & Lyle investigates stevia supply chain

February 18, 2019 EcoVadis ‏‏‎


Tate & Lyle has launched an investigation into the sustainability of its stevia supply chain. The company said independent non-profit Earthwatch would carry out the inquiry, which “aims to identify steps to ensure that as the stevia market grows, sustainable growing practices are embedded consistently and socio-economic benefits are maximised”. Tate & Lyle sources its stevia, a low calorie sweetener, in China, as does its partner Sweet Green Fields. According to Earthwatch, around 90% of the world’s stevia production is grown in China.
