Default STEV - More potential that it is given credit for...

In short, firms managed under the aforementioned structure develop scientific methods for running the farming operations, including “alternatives, choices & opportunities within the framework of resource restrictions & social & personal constraints of farming business. This complex information is integrated and synthesized,”

Stevia Corp., which before March 4, 2011, was known as Interpro Management Corp., was established in 2007 to grow and market the Stevia rabaudiana plant, which is used to produce stevia extracts.

In September 2011, Stevia began to trade on the Over-the-Counter Exchange (OTC) under the symbol STEV.

The stevia extract, when blended with sugar, produces a product with less caloric content, thus attacking obesity, and allows people to still enjoy drinks such as coke or even a chocolate.

In 2008, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the stevia extract Rebaudioside A (Reb-A), extracted from stevia leaves, for the U.S. market. Coca-Cola Co., PepsiCo Inc., and Cargill Inc. products contain the stevia extract Reb-A.

In less than a year [after FDA approval], Stevia’s U.S. sales had passed sales figures for saccharine and aspartame. Today, Stevia is found in over 6,000 products including beverages, foods and medicines, and this number is growing rapidly as Stevia heads towards mass commoditization like sugar and high fructose corn syrup.

Stevia Corp. has research and development operations in the United States, Singapore, Vietnam, and Indonesia, and farms in Vietnam (3 nursery fields and 17 test fields) and Indonesia.

In October 2011, Stevia went into strategic partnerships with Agro Genesis Pte Ltd. and Growers Synergy Pte Ltd., which mainly specialize in operating Asian agribusiness operations.

“Our program is ambitious and is not going to come to fruition overnight. We are attempting to capture a significant share of an exploding industry sector with immense potential; this takes vision, planning and a lot of skills and expertise,” said George Blankenbaker, president of Stevia Corp., in a press release.

Stevia “has a very attractive entry point, and prices could continue to rise steadily with some very real potential to rocket past the $1.00 mark! I recommend you begin your research on STEV immediately! We see some very real potential for gains in the intermediate term and beyond,” according to an October 2011 article on the StockMarketWatch website.

We are here now - 2014 and there have been some major advancements with the company.

“Companies were ready to jump into the market with a wave of kitchen and tabletop stevia formulations and stevia-sweetened products the moment the FDA gave it GRAS [Generally Recognized As Safe] status in December 2008, and have since formed partnerships and entered into mergers and acquisitions as part of strategies to exploit this market,” said David Sprinkle, publisher of Packaged Facts, in an August 2011 press release.

In 2008, approximately $20 million worth of stevia products were sold in the global retail market. The market potential for 2011 ranged between $800 million and $2 billion, with 76 new products that contain stevia being introduced into the market.

The European Union Standing Committee on Food Chain and Animal Health approved high-purity stevia for use as a food ingredient in July 2011, according to the Packaged Facts press release.

“Following approval in Europe, Packaged Facts expects sales of products containing stevia to skyrocket. European approval is projected to trigger approval across Africa and the Middle East, and global approval is widely expected by the end of 2012,” the Packaged Facts press release stated.

The stevia extract global market could reach 11,000 tons by end of 2014, necessitating stevia production to increase to at least three times the 2011 level.

On May 15, 2014 Stevia Corp. Achieved Spring Harvest Forecast Doubling the Previous Year's Harvest. Stevia Corp. harvested more than 2,000 tons of crops during the spring harvest of 2014, doubling the 2013 spring harvest. The majority of the spring harvest occurred during the Company's fourth quarter ending March 31, 2014 with the balance occurring during the current quarter ending June 30, 2014.

George Blankenbaker, Stevia Corp President, comments, "We are continuing to diversify our crop portfolio and add international clients. To date, we are working with the largest food conglomerate in South Korea, a major importer to Europe, and we are in talks with a major Fortune 500 company to supply its South East Asian operations. Our model is working, now it is a matter of scaling it."

Mr. Blankenbaker continues, "With our production base firmly in place, we are focused on developing the US market and increasing our margins with higher value added products. Real Hemp LLC, our US subsidiary, will play a central role in this effort. We are currently confirming final details of our initial products for the US market with the intent to go live with our Real Hemp website in June 2014."
