Hoffman Estates, Ill.-based Tate & Lyle announced being named a Project Spotlight Honoree of Field to Market: The Alliance for Sustainable Agriculture, at its 2021 bi-annual Plenary and General Assembly Meeting. The Plenary and General Assembly celebrates farmers, advisers and innovative collaborations driving real progress in sustainability and regenerative agriculture, the company says. Tate & Lyle, one of 12 honorees to be celebrated, was recognized by the alliance’s Awards and Recognition Committee for its sustainable agriculture program, first established in 2018. The program remains Field to Market’s largest registered Continuous Improvement Project to date. Demonstrating progress in scaling conservation on the ground, the Tate & Lyle Sustainable Corn Innovation Project was recognized for its support of more than 1,700 farmers on 1.5 million acres of sustainable agriculture in the U.S., equivalent to the corn Tate & Lyle buys globally each year. Of those enrolled in the program, nearly 90% are sharing data with the value chain. The program helps farmers to more effectively target and measure the impact of conservation practices.
