QUFU, China, June 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Sunwin Stevia International, Inc. (OTCQB: SUWN, “Sunwin Stevia”), one of the top global suppliers of high quality stevia extracts including Rebaudioside A 98 and Rebaudioside A99, announced today that it has completed construction of a new manufacturing facility that can produce 500 metric tons of high-grade stevia per year. The new facility has been in operation to produce high-grade stevia products on a commercial basis for the market.
In 2014 Sunwin Stevia invested approximately $2 million to start building this new facility in order to meet substantially increased demand for its high-grade stevia products. The new manufacturing facility is fully equipped with stainless steel equipment without any plastic while it has a fully automated system in order to prevent any potential contamination from operators and plastic. In addition, the new manufacturing facility uses the most advanced production equipment that is the first time to be used for stevia production in the industry, such as scraper with centrifuge and fluidized drying system.
As of now, Sunwin Stevia has approximately 1,600 metric tons in manufacturing capacity per year to produce high-grade stevia extract. With these manufacturing facilities, Sunwin Stevia is able to deliver stevia products containing Rebaudioside A in a range of 50% to 99% with a format of powder, granular, or tablet.
Ms. Dongdong Lin, CEO of Sunwin Stevia stated, “We believe Sunwin Stevia becomes the largest manufacturer of high-grade stevia in the world. We expect the total demand for stevia extract will reach a new level in 2016 and beyond. Our state of the art manufacturing facilities lay a solid foundation to grow our stevia business. Our total manufacturing capacity will allow us to grow our annual revenues over $60 million. We will actively market our stevia products in Europe, Asia, South America, and North America to become a dominant global high-grade stevia supplier for years to come.”
