Sucrose cattle the successful conclusion of patent litigation

9 June 2009 526 views No Comment

Changzhou Niutang, one of the largest global manufacturers of sucralose, and its US subsidiary, US Niutang, have announced that Tate&Lyle will not appeal the recent decision made by the US International Trade Commission that decisively rejected Tate&Lyle’s infringement allegations against Niutang.

In addition, Tate&Lyle has requested a voluntary dismissal of the patent infringement allegations it brought against Niutang in the US District Court.

“We’re delighted to have all aspects of this litigation successfully concluded, with a complete victory in favour of Niutang,” said Licheng Wang Jr, general manager of Changzhou Niutang. “We will continue to focus our attention on what we do best: providing the highest quality sweeteners and food additives along with outstanding service to our worldwide customers.”

Niutang has steadily grown its sucralose customer base, which now spans North America, Central America, South America, Europe and Asia. Niutang is already one of the largest manufacturers of aspartame in the world, and it has built upon that successful track record in growing its sucralose business.

“Niutang’s sucralose sales have more than tripled from 2007 to 2008,” continued Wang. “We recently completed the expansion of our sucralose capacity to 300 metric tonnes, and have announced our plans to increase our capacity to 500 metric tonnes by 2012. As our sucralose business continues to grow, we remain committed to providing our customers with the high-quality products and unsurpassed level of customer service they have come to expect from Niutang.”
