“CaringTLC for your needs today, tomorrow and beyond”
TLC Ingredients was created in 2001 with the concept of “Tender Loving Care” as the foundation of our business.
Founders Tommy Turriff, Peter Lorusso and Jim Cavelle put together our original business plan, designed to provide our clients with the highest levels of customer service and personal attention.
With our state-of-the-art facility, built in 2009 near Chicago, our technical expertise and sense of urgency second to none, our customers and suppliers know us as the highest quality distributor of food ingredients, industrial chemicals and phenolic resins. The cornerstones of TLC Ingredients are our strong commitment to Food Safety and Responsible Distribution.
We are proud of our broad offering of ingredients and chemicals used by customers in the global food, feed, and wellness industries.
We represent manufacturers of many different industrial chemicals used in the personal care, household industrial and institutional, water treatment, adhesives and specialty chemical manufacturing industries.
TLC Ingredients has long-standing strong relationships with industry-leading supplier partners. Our customers benefit from the supply chain assurance, reliable local inventories, competitive pricing, technical support and product line breadth.
