About Us


Tata Chemicals Europe (TCE) is one of Europe's leading producers of sodium carbonate, salt and sodium bicarbonate and other products, from our plants in Cheshire, UK.
We are the UK's only manufacturer of soda ash and sodium bicarbonate. Our high-quality soda ash is used in the manufacture of glass, detergents and chemicals and in several other industry applications. Our many grades of sodium bicarbonate have applications ranging from haemodialysis and pharmaceuticals, food and animal feed, flue gas treatments through to detergents and personal care products.
Our British Salt Business is the UK's leading salt business, producing pure white salt for a variety of uses from food, water-softening, and industrial uses through to de-icing.
We have a long and proud history. Having been founded in 1874, and being a founder-member of ICI. Now owned by Tata Chemicals, we are proud to be part of the Tata Group of companies. Not only does this give TCE global reach, but aligns us squarely with the industry-leading ethical business and sustainability practices, for which the Tata Group is rightly recognised.
