Stevia made headlines as Health Canada approved stevia November 30th as an additive to food and beverages. FoodIngrediantsfirst.com reported November 28 th referencing Sunwin's . (OTCQB:SUWN) marketing partner, WILD Flavors, “One year after the European Union granted approval for steviolglycosides to be marketed, WILD has noted positive interim results. The great-taste expert has worked with customers to create a number of stevia-sweetened products that have been market successes -- everything from beverages to candies.”
Sunwin began its expansion project in April 2012 in anticipation of an improvement in demand in the coming years as the use of stevia as a healthy low calorie sweetener continues to increase across the globe. Sunwin has begun trial production of its new lines and anticipates its added production capabilities to be fully operational in the first quarter of calendar 2013.
The completion of this high tech expansion of its production facilities brings Sunwin's total bulk stevia production capacity to 1,300 metric tons, including 500 metric tons of high grade stevioside products (Rabaudioside 60, 80, 95, 98, and 99) and 500 metric tons of steviosin which is a stevioside extract used in the pharmaceutical industry.
Sunwin's new stevioside extraction line uses a state of the art crystallization process that substantially reduces the production time while increasing product yield. Sunwin believes this process will lead to a substantial reduction in overall processing costs as utilization rates increase. In addition, Sunwin's facilities are now capable of producing 500 metric tons of stevioside in granular and tablet forms on an annual basis. Demand for stevia in these forms has been increasing and management believes Sunwin is now poised to capitalize on this industry trend.
