LONDON – Tate & Lyle, P.L.C. plans to invest $65 million to expand its operations in Lafayette, Ind. The company will install equipment at its Lafayette South plant to expand production of its Krystar crystalline fructose sweetener, which will meet growing demand in the Americas and Asia, Tate & Lyle said March 16.

“This expansion not only allows us to stay ahead of the global demand for crystalline fructose but also gives us the opportunity and flexibility to continue to grow within the North American and emerging markets,” said Joan Braca, president of Specialty Food Ingredients at Tate & Lyle, which is based in London and has a U.S. office in Chicago. “We’d like to thank both the state of Indiana and the city of Lafayette for their ongoing support of projects like these and look forward to our continued relationship with them.”
