We took decision to pay attention on this plant which is very weak known in Latvian society, but is very popular all around the World for people who wants or are constrained think about healthy and natural alternative of sugar, e.g. patients of type II diabetes.

In Europe at the moment stevia is available in ECO shops and Internet, but it is not supplied for consumers as food additive.

Number of world wide famous scientists, especially in Europe, are doing a lot of research work, organising meetings and conferences and taking part in several discussions to change officially status of stevia with goal have possibility to use stevia as food additive. The reason of so weak progress could be huge way trough EU bureaucracy corridors.
