("Tate & Lyle")

Publication of Circular and Notice of General Meeting

On 12 July 2021, Tate & Lyle announced that it had entered into an agreement to sell a controlling stake in a new company and its subsidiaries which will hold Tate & Lyle's Primary Products business in North America and Latin America and its interests in the Almidones Mexicanos S.A de C.V and DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio-Products Company, LLC joint ventures, to Gemini Holdings, LP, an affiliate of funds managed by KPS Capital Partners, LP (such sale together with the entry into of certain related transaction agreements being the "Transaction").

The Transaction constitutes a Class 1 transaction for Tate & Lyle under the Listing Rules and is conditional upon, amongst other things, the approval of Tate & Lyle's ordinary shareholders at a general meeting.

Tate & Lyle is pleased to announce that it has today published a circular in relation to (amongst other things) the Transaction (the "Circular"), having received approval from the Financial Conduct Authority.

The Circular also seeks the approval by Tate & Lyle's ordinary shareholders of an amendment to the Company's remuneration policy. Such resolution is separate to (and not inter-conditional with) the approval of Tate & Lyle's ordinary shareholders that is sought in connection with the Transaction.

The Circular contains further details of these matters as well as a notice convening a general meeting of the holders of ordinary shares in Tate & Lyle to be held at Hilton London Heathrow Airport T4, Terminal 4, Hounslow, TW6 3AF, GB at 10.30 a.m. on 30 September 2021 (the "Notice of General Meeting").

Printed copies of the Circular will be posted today to Tate & Lyle's ordinary shareholders and any other person entitled to receive a copy (other than those who have elected for, or who have been deemed to have elected for, notification by electronic communication).

A copy of the Circular and certain other documents in relation to the Transaction are available for inspection on Tate & Lyle's website at www.tateandlyle.com.

A copy of the Circular (containing the Notice of General Meeting) has been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism, where it will shortly be available for inspection at https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism .

Citigroup is acting as sponsor to Tate & Lyle in connection with the Transaction.
