Hello and best wishes of the New Year from all of us at Stevia First Corporation! This is Robert Brooke CEO of Stevia First here to bring you an update regarding our recent stevia tasting event. On Monday December 9th we took over a fabulous location, the Antiquité Maison Privée in Sacramento, CA. We had over 50 guests in attendance, many of whom are deeply knowledgeable and quite interested in the industry and the commercial possibilities for our products.
Our VP of Operations and Senior Agronomist Dr. Jeremiah Mann had a very busy evening as he personally walked many of the guests through the tasting process which prominently featured our enzyme-enhanced stevia extract. This particular extract was created using an innovative fermentation process, and we’re adapting similar technology to enable the reliable production of next-generation stevia sweeteners, which simply taste better and are more “sugar-like” than most any other products on the market today. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive and there was great enthusiasm from the audience especially for the featured stevia extracts to be in production and ready for consumption.
During the Sacramento tasting event we even shot some video so that we could more readily share the experience with those who were unable to attend. You can take a look and listen here:
All in all, we were very pleased with the response to this event, and also with the positive feedback we received in Los Angeles from the attendees at the LD Micro investor conference earlier in December. During the first night of that conference, we sponsored stevia cocktails and appetizers and were able to interact with many guests who were in attendance for the keynote presentation and an evening panel discussion of the “Best Investment Ideas in Micro-Cap.”
In 2014, we will be quickly moving ahead to deliver products that contain all the nutritional and sustainability benefits of stevia combined with a world-class taste profile. So, once again, our very best to you all in the New Year and we look forward to keeping you informed of our progress.
Please follow us on Twitter @SteviaFirstCorp and let me know what you think of today’s blog post. I would like your feedback and welcome any questions about Stevia First or the stevia industry which I may address in my next blog post.
