Tate & Lyle Jetty

Operator: Tate & Lyle.
Cargo type: dry bulk – raw cane sugar.
Raw cane sugar was originally imported in oak casks, and later in jute bags. As late as the 1960s, sugar for Tate & Lyle was discharged at the West India Dock and moved by lighters to Silvertown. In 1967, the company built a deep-water jetty to receive raw sugar directly into a conveyor trough, to be processed in what is now the largest cane Manhattan Wharf.©sugar refinery in the world.
