Land O'Lakes SUSTAIN, Tate & Lyle Announce Sustainably-Sourced Corn Collaboration
The relationship enables Tate & Lyle to enhance sustainable agriculture by helping corn farmers target and measure the impact of their environmental stewardship efforts
Land O'Lakes SUSTAIN and global ingredient supplier Tate & Lyle announced a new collaboration to advance conservation practices on Midwest farms – specifically in sourcing sustainable corn. The relationship enables Tate & Lyle, a significant user of US-grown corn, to enhance sustainable agriculture by helping corn farmers target and measure the impact of their environmental stewardship efforts, using the latest technology.
The collaboration leverages the Truterra™ Insights Engine, a new interactive on-farm digital platform from Land O'Lakes SUSTAIN, that helps farmers scale their environmental stewardship efforts and assess return-on-investment in real time, acre-by-acre. In turn, the Truterra Insights Engine supports Tate & Lyle to have greater visibility of its environmental footprint beyond the factory gates, enabling the company and its customers to make informed decisions about their supply chain environmental strategies.
Farmers are supported through the Land O'Lakes SUSTAIN agricultural retailer network in the Midwest, including Ceres Solutions, The Equity and Premier Ag. These well-known agricultural retailers are trusted advisors to farmers and are well positioned to provide insights and information to farmers to enable them to make meaningful changes to their ways of working, spreading best practice throughout the farming community.
The Truterra Insights Engine is designed to facilitate collaboration and impact throughout the industry. The full suite of the Truterra offering uses technology and collaboration to advance the food and agricultural industry's ability to enable conservation at scale across a variety of crops, commodities and commitments.
