What we do

Laboratory Test tubes

Tate & Lyle Ventures consists of two venture capital funds, a £25 million venture capital fund launched in 2006 (and now fully committed) and an active £30 million fund focused on investing in high growth companies in the areas of food sciences and technologies.

Both funds are structured and managed as Limited Partnerships enabling them to be managed as independent venture capital funds. Tate & Lyle Ventures is structured in this way to enable objective investment decisions to be made rapidly and independently based on best practice in the venture capital industry. It also means we can co-invest with other investors, both financial and corporate, and fulfil our role with the companies we back by helping them grow into profitable, successful businesses for the entrepreneurs who create them.

Our association with Tate & Lyle  provides our portfolio companies with the opportunity to access complementary technologies, strategic guidance and potential routes to market for new products through Tate & Lyle's global network
