Tate & Lyle’s SPLENDA® Sucralose plant in Singapore has achieved top results in the Agri-Food & Veterinary Authority (AVA) Food Safety Excellence Awards.

The plant earned an ‘A’ grading from AVA Singapore for the third consecutive year since it began operation in 2007.

“Achieving the highest grade possible once again recognizes our continuing efforts to supply SPLENDA® Sucralose of unparalleled quality and purity,” said S.K. Hui, Director of Marketing & Business Development at Tate & Lyle Asia Pacific.
