Truvia sweetener to expand global presence

In addition, the recent opening of the Canadian market for stevia as both a tabletop sweetener and as an ingredient in foods and beverages will allow Truvia sweetener to be available throughout North America in 2013.

“We are pleased with the rapid acceptance of Truvia sweetener around the world, and our strategic agreement with Grupo Herdez enables us to further expand our global presence,” says Zanna McFerson, vice president and business director for the Truvia business. “With the market opening in Canada, Truvia sweetener is the only stevia brand to be available across North America, Venezuela and select countries in Europe in 2013.”

“We are excited to add Truvia sweetener to our portfolio of premium brands,” said Héctor Hernández-Pons, chairman and CEO of Grupo Herdez. “The demand for a calorie-free sweetener from a natural source has grown with consumers’ expectations around understanding the source of their food. Our strategic agreement with the Truvia business, the leader in its category, will keep our products relevant to consumers by acknowledging their needs and preferences.”

Truvia stevia leaf extract can be found in a variety of beverages and foods, including juices, sparkling beverages and yogurts, and in more than 30 countries across four continents.
