Stevia helps the community, the environment and the consumer

The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that in 2030, obesity will be the primary cause of human illness and mortality. Stevia, a natural non-caloric sweetener, is expected to play a major role in the control of obesity related problems such as diabetes and heart diseases. A large-scale stevia farm is an important source of employment, which is considered one of the largest drivers for development in rural Peru.In addition, one hectare of stevia is equivalent to 60 to 90 hectares of sugar in terms of sweetness. As a result, the use of stevia promotes the smart use of land and water.

Stevia One Peru

Founded in 2009, Stevia One Peru operates its three stevia farms in the subtropical region of San Martin, with ideal growing conditions in terms of precipitation, sunlight, temperature, and soil.  Thanks to innovative agriculture and patented genetically superior varieties, yields and sweetener output are higher than anywhere in the world. 

Evolutions

After a preparation phase in which land was bought, infrastructure built and the biolab and nursery established, 2011 was the first year in which Stevia One Peru entered into production. 

During 2012, Stevia One Peru improved significantly its production protocols through intensive research and development. The 10 tonnes/ha leaf yields obtained in 2012 were unseen in the industry and are extremely promising for the years to come. The Naranjos farm, by far the largest of the three, was brought into production. Plans for the processing factory were started. The foundations for a comprehensive sustainability management system were laid, paving the way for BSCI and Rainforest Alliance certification. Since 2012, Stevia One Europe reinforces the company’s presence in the European and American market.

Outlook

The entire team is working hard on the implementation of the social and environmental requirements of the BSCI and Rainforest Alliance standards, to be audited in June 2013. By 2015, Stevia One Peru aims to have expanded its farms to up to 500 ha.  The start of the construction of a concentration plant is planned for mid 2013. End of 2014 the concentration plant will be complemented with a refinery plant, to be fully operational as well in 2015.
