In the more than 100 years since its founding, the independent ingredients supplier has had only six managing directors. Perhaps it is this strong thread of continuity and stability that has allowed Treatt to grow into the company it is today. Treatt plc employs more than 170 people and exports over 3,000 ingredients to more than 90 countries. In 2002, the Group reported turnover of $50 million (ca. £30.7 million), an 11 percent increase from $45 million (ca. £27.6 million) in 2001.
