STEVIA

REVOLUTIONIZING THE GLOBAL NATURAL SWEETENER INDUSTRY

The sugar substitute is extracted from the stevia plant. A species called Stevia rebaudiana is naturally grown in Brazil and Paraguay, where it has been used for hundreds of years to sweeten foods. The plant gets its sweetness from naturally occurring glycosides, which are extracted from the stevia leaves through a process that starts by placing the plant in water.

Over the past 15 years, GLG’s agricultural expertise has produced a number of the most desirable stevia leaf varieties in the world. These plants offer increased disease resistance, significantly larger-leaves, and a higher percentage of prefered steviol glycosides; all through GLG’s strategic non-genetically modified agriculture program.

UNPARALLELED BENEFITS OF GLG’s STEVIA AGRICULTURE

LARGEST GROWING AREA

With an estimated 80% of the world’s stevia acreage, China’s stevia growing area is much larger than that of Kenya and Paraguay.

GEOGRAPHIC DIVERSIFICATION

GLG’s stevia growing areas are widely distributed and less vulnerable to natural disasters. This geographic diversification is essential to guarantee a reliable annual stevia harvest.

30 YEARS OF GROWING HISTORY

After years of training and development, GLG has developed a long term relationship with stevia farmers across the country. Their strong foundation and experience for growing stevia matches real demand with supply to ensure the farmers receive a stable income.

LOW RISK CONTRACT FARMING MODEL

Through “Company + Farmer + Growing Base” and “Company + Cooperation + Farmer” flexible modes, GLG has established the mature farmer cooperation model and the raw material procurement model.

GLG CROP CYCLES YIELD HIGHER GLYCOSIDE DEVELOPMENT

GLG starts with a seed and grows a new plant compared to harvesting off the same plant multiple times.

LOW COSTS & FAIR RETURN TO FARMERS

China has historically paid lower stevia leaf prices than other countries that grow stevia. However, GLG’s Fair Wage program ensures farmers get a better wage than many other countries.
