Tate & Lyle's Earnings

Matt Britzman, Equity Analyst at Hargreaves Lansdown

“Third quarter trading was robust at Tate & Lyle, with double digit revenue growth showing resilient demand in the face of a round of price hikes and broader economic uncertainty.

It’s pleasing to see no material growth slowdown in North America, despite ongoing supple chain troubles, and volumes across the Food & Beverage Solutions business look to be holding up despite the higher prices.

We expected a slowdown in sales from the Sucralose division, as Tate pushed orders through the first half of the year – effectively front-loading performance there.

The Primient joint venture looks to be benefiting from planned price hikes and we’d expected to see performance continue to improve as we move through the second half and margins recover – it’s good to hear that’s progressing as expected.”
