Tate & Lyle PLC, a leading global provider of food and beverage ingredients and solutions, and Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos Mexico (NPH; Spanish for “Our Little Brothers and Sisters”), a charitable organization that provides a home for thousands of orphaned, abandoned and vulnerable children across Mexico, Central and South America, are embarking on a partnership to expand the sustainable production of fresh fruit and vegetables in greenhouses at the charity’s residences in the state of Morelos, Mexico which house over 650 children.
Through corporate funding, pro-bono expertise, and volunteer services, Tate & Lyle will work alongside NPH staff and its residents to help enable the production of fresh fruits and vegetables to be used in the children’s meals. The partnership will also provide nutrition and agriculture education to support student health and well-being and improve the growing practices used.
A number of online and in-person mentorship courses and talks will be run by female employees from Tate & Lyle’s local office, to strengthen and empower the girls of NPH in their own educational development. Using its extensive knowledge of nutrition, Tate & Lyle will also offer training to NPH staff and volunteers, and the children they serve, in the areas of food safety, improving nutrition and quality processes.
This partnership perfectly aligns with Tate & Lyle’s purpose of Improving Lives for Generations by supporting healthy living, building thriving communities and caring for our planet.
